5 Things Friday x 2: 10 Stylish Geometric Decorations

Back on the 5 Things Friday series, after awhile! This week, we're doubling down with 10 things to count down with. I'm currently on a geometric phase. I've also always been interested in 3D printing, especially when it comes to making complex latticed designs in furniture, jewelry, etc. Happily for me, at least, geometry seems to be one of the rising trends in design nowadays... so I've gathered a list of 10 geometric items that will hopefully inspire you or catch your eye :).

10. Small Spica lamp by Iacoli & Mcallister

Named after the brightest star in the Virgo constellation, this lamp is elegant and modern in its geometric simplicity.

9. Mr. Fox print by May and Belle

What does the fox say? "Go geometrical!"

Sorry. That was terrible. I'm still keeping that sentence.

8. Themis Mobile by Poketo

Your baby will be fascinated with this colourful geode mobile, but it wouldn't look out of place hanging elsewhere in your home. And did you know that Poketo's name (pronounced poh-KEH-toe) came about from co-founder Angie's Korean grandmother mispronouncing "pocket"? So cute! Poketo has a variety of other items, from wallets to apparel and accessories.

7. Ceremony backdrop by SarahParkDesigns

4. Turning Japanese necklaces from Nylon Sky

Simply love the elegant fan shape and combination of ivory and black, and gold with wood and tortoise shell.

3. Rhino 2 bedding by Deniz Ercelebi

The rhino is a bit of a random choice for bedding, but I like the colour scheme, the tonality, and how the rhino pops out in an almost 3D-like manner.

2. LH2O bottles by by Pedrita with Água de Luso

I love this! The design mimics space-packing structures found in nature e.g. rock formations and cellular structures. Thus, the bottles can be packed closely, minimising space between each dimension of the bottles. This optimises production material, and reduces storage and transportation costs.  

1. Kaleido trays by Hay

Danish design company Hay is all about modular design. Love these trays from the Kaleido range - you can mix and match the many different shapes for a striking retro arrangement. 

What do you think of geometric designs? Too sharp? Or really cool?
