Li Edelkoort at Dezeen Live

Interiors and products will need more tactile designs as the use of computers and screens makes us crave a sense of touch, trend forecaster Li Edelkoort predicts in this movie filmed at Dezeen Live. "The more screens we have the more our figures are afraid we’re going to disappear," she says. "I feel it already in my fingers that they want me to touch lots of things so I don’t loose contact with touch." Edelkoort therefore predicts that textiles will be increasingly important in interior design, supporting the increasingly nomadic lifestyle that mobile technology permits. "You can be in the middle of the desert and people will think you’re in New York," she says, "So you become anonymous and you don't care anymore where you are. I think that sort of freedom which is going to be created will make us want to have lots of textiles, lots of rugs, we will have portable tables, portable sinks, portable lights like lanterns." This nomadic attitude could also alter our social relationships, she suggests. "This liberty we have now in work and play will reflect also in the other parts of life, so eating, sleeping, entertaining, we would be more nomadic about that, not always sitting at the same table with the same partner." Edelkoort proposes grandparents and grandchildren as "the new couple of the future," as people live longer and choose more freely who to spend their time with. She thinks that "individualism is over and so people care much more about family, even if it’s chosen family and friends," leading to a more compassionate society. "It’s all about a society which is, let’s say, softer, more rounded, more textured." Edelkoort begins the talk with an image showing the hands of a child and elderly person. "There is a falling away of the generation gap, whereas grandparents are very young and young children are very old," she says. "They hang out together for a while... it means that you can be a baby your whole life, or you can be already old even when you’re born. I think that age is now going to be more of a mental thing than a physical thing actually." The next image represents nomadism and shows textiles with portable furniture. "We have all our devices we can work and stay wherever we want," says Edelkoort. "This new feeling of freedom, which is fairly recent, is only now starting to modify the brain I believe." Her third image shows Massoud Hassani's device for seeking and destroying landmines, based on a wind-powered toy and made of bamboo and plastic components. "It’s a mine killer, but its completely organic and very cheap," Edelkoort says, adding "it’s very beautiful how a childhood toy can become now such an amazing device." Next is a set of building blocks for children comprising rounded wooden pieces and small leather balls. "This is to teach babies how to feel form and how to create buildings and skylines, and it’s like soft toys instead of the square toys," she explains. "Of course, already the babies have their screens so this is to counterbalance the screens." The final image shows a mask incorporating bones and introduces the 2013 Arnhem fashion biennial (MoBa 13) that Edelkoort is curating on the theme of fetishism. "There is a moment in fashion where there is this super need to be very fetishistic. There is animalism, there is children’s behaviors, there is of course bondage, there is lace, there is fur, feathers and so on," she explains. "I'm going to investigate why." Edelkoort concludes with the idea that "trend forecasting is like archeology but to the future", explaining how she looks for little fragments in current culture to predict what's coming next. Dezeen Live was a series of discussions between Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs and a number of designers and critics that took place at design exhibition 100% Design during London Design Festival this September.

Augmented reality demonstration at Dezeen's Imagine Shop in Selfridges

See more architecture and design movies at This movie we filmed at Dezeen's pop-up shop of the future at London department store Selfridges demonstrates how augmented reality technology could transform retail. Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs introduces the shop we curated for Selfridges' Festival of Imagination, which includes a virtual retail experience for Dezeen Watch Store and a life-size walkaround digital model of Zaha Hadid's superyacht - both created by technology company Inition. "The Imagine Shop is an attempt to visualise the kind of products, services and shops we might have in the future," says Fairs. The space on the ground floor of the department store contains all wall of 3D-printed products and clothing by Janne Kyttanen of 3D Systems, and even features a giant printed ping-pong table. "The most exciting thing here is that we've worked with Inition, which is a 3D visualisation company, to show how augmented reality could be used in stores of the future," Fairs says. Inition lead creative Alex Lambert then talks about the augmented-reality projects that his company and Dezeen worked on for this event. "Inition and Dezeen collaborated on two pieces of augmented reality," he says, "one for watches available at the Dezeen Watch Store and another for a £300 million superyacht designed by Zaha Hadid." Lambert talks through the technology, which works using a tablet camera that picks up the code from patterned markers then displays the 3D model on screen. "This type of augmented reality relies on a tablet," he explains. "You'll see a live video feed coming through the camera and once you point it at the marker the 3D model will appear." Two versions of the yacht are included in the shop: a miniature version and a full-size model that glides across the tablet screen. "We've actually created the yacht in full scale," says Lambert. "It's a sunny blue ocean with a full-scale yacht sailing past, just to give people an idea of the scale of the superyacht." Using the same technology, shoppers can try on designs from Dezeen Watch Store at a virtual watch shop. Shoppers simply attach a band around their wrist and hold it up to a camera, then the chosen watch manifests over the band. "We take one of these bespoke trackers... turn to the camera, get the marker in view and boom! The watch appears," Lambert describes. Inition added texture and shadows to the virtual watches to make them look as realistic as possible. Different models and colourways appear instantaneously around the wrist on screen as they are selected. "Dezeen are very forward thinking in employing this technology, especially for watches," says Lambert. "In the future hopefully people will download the app, use a webcam or tablet and try on the watches at home before they purchase online." Elsewhere in the department store, Inition also worked with fashion designer Gareth Pugh to install a virtual reality booth on the first floor and an auditorium designed by Dutch architects OMA has been created in the basement. The Festival of Imagination continues all this month at Selfridges on Oxford Street, central London.
