Dezeen’s first hot list about most talked about architects, designers and brands in 2015-16 is out!
Based on the 400 most searched terms from approximately two million monthly readers a hit list in nine categories was established that includes the hottest architects, designers and brands. Other categories that are trending are fashion, institutions, schools, artists, events, and personalities.
Almost 50% of the most popular entries from 1 July 2015 to 31 June 2016 are related to architecture and architects and London is confirmed as the design hub of the world. The audience is interested in Japanese architecture, design and its influences on global projects. Events that are a “must-attend” include the Milan Design Week which includes the Salone Del Mobile and a few others in Europe. Finally – not surprising – in the brand category is Apple as one of the most talked about brands, but not the most… IKEA is the top brand.
We were also very pleased to see Li Edlekoort, trend forecaster from Trend Union, in the top five of the fashion category. She recently presented at our second Design Affair in Kohler, Wisconsin, USA, where she presented on the intuitive thinkers and global citizens and their views on new materialism.
The five most talked about entries per categories are in the table below – courtesy of Deezen. For more information, please see: http://architizer.com/blog/the-hot-list-dezeen/
