Continuing part one of the round-up, here are five more inspiring designers whose work I’ve featured this year.
Each designer in this post has a unique, recognizable style. All have introduced designs that have changed the industry in their own way, leaving an indelible mark that continues to inspire other artists and homeowners alike. What’s also inspiring is how vastly different from each other, offering their own perspectives on interior (and even exterior) art.
From architecture to furniture, these inspiring designers cover a great range of how design can be intrepreted. No matter what your personal style is, it’s hard not to find inspiration from these incredible artists.
Marcel Wanders is a visionary. As co-founder of the successful design label Moooi and the art director, product and interior designer of his powerhouse studio (which employs around 50 international design specialists), Wanders has made a name for himself in the industry as one of the most prolific and innovative designers.
Ralph Lauren is an American designer who has created a style empire, from fashion and fragrances to home decor. It all embraces a standard of luxury that he has become known for. The trademark style of Ralph Lauren is always upscale and sophisticated, whether in a rustic, laid back setting or in a sleek, glamorous space.
No one does whimsy quite like Mackenzie-Childs. Husband and wife team Richard and Victoria Mackenzie-Childs founded their furniture and ceramics line to share their unique vision of design with the world. Though they have recently parted ways with the company, their creative aesthetic lives on through its products and is still capturing people’s imaginations.
Some designers transcend design and what they create should instead be considered art. Such could be said about Maya Romanoff, the creative genius behind the Maya Romanoff Corporation and its exquisite wall coverings. Though Romanoff passed away a year ago, his legacy lives on through the company and the work of the designers that perpetuate his vision.
Frank Gehry has designed many of the most recognizable buildings in the world. Vanity Fair labelled him as “the most important architect of our age” and many of his buildings have become world-famous tourist attractions. His best-known works include the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and the Guggenheim Museum in Spain.
Which designer of these five has inspired you the most?
