Products and ideas our readers think will shape home environments and the way we live.
In the build up to the launch of our Future Of Home Living exhibition in New York on July 23rd, we’ve been giving people glimpses of some of the furniture pieces and design concepts that are going to be included in the home of the future trends report and exhibit in NYC. This past week we asked our audience what ideas and products that they thought would shape the home of the future.
Here are some of the top suggestions we received:
Fracture is a service that prints photos directly onto single-strength, ultra clear glass, creating a picture frame and mount all in one. The service can create pieces from any type of digital file, and the Fracture Marketplace offers pieces from renowned artists and photographers to decorate your walls.
The Bio Robot Refrigerator concept cools individual food items at their optimal temperature by placing them into a sheet of non-sticky, biopolymer gel. This futuristic fridge is door- and drawer-less, and is four times smaller than the conventional refrigerator to create more space in the kitchen.
Artefact’s concept Serenity Home Operating System is the product design firm’s vision for a smart OS that gives homeowners the control and information that they need, while presenting the information as art forms. Homeowners can toggle through a range of home controls and automation on e-ink tablets, which provide status updates for aspects like temperature, lighting, sound, and airflow.
View Dynamic Glass regulates the amount of heat and glare that enters a home, and automatically transitions between clear and tinted in response to conditions outside. Replacing typical solutions like blinds and air conditioners, this glass reduces annual cooling and light energy consumption while retaining a pleasant and unobstructed view to the outdoors.
Located at 101 West 15th Street, the Future of Home Living experience will offer a glimpse into the lifestyle of the modern-day New Yorker, just a taste of which you’ve seen above. From the convenient to the visionary, we will provide an opportunity for multi-sensory engagement with the products, services, and ideas that are at the forefront of modern city life.
