BNIM Interiors on Future-Focused Design
Our BNIM Interiors Studio attended NeoCon 2023, one of the largest commercial interior design expos and conferences in North America. After exploring the latest products, materials, and innovations in design, the Interiors team shares key insights and inspirations, focusing on what they foresee for the future of design:
  • Material and craft transparency to showcase makers
  • Blurring the lines between residential and commercial in response to hybrid work
  • Exploratory color and expressions of style, from vibrant and bold palettes to timeless black and white 
  • Increasing awareness of environmental impact and new innovations in materials and supply chain
  • Focus on biomimicry as a source of inspiration for plant-based alternative materials
