Some of the world's top designers are embracing every color in the rainbow. From Tom Dixon's Warp Collection to Patricia Urquiola's Shimmer Collection for Glas Italia, bold acrylics and iridescent materials are having a serious moment. Full of lustrous, ever-changing color, the prism look is great for every room in the house, so we'd encourage you to dive into the new trend. To help, we've put together a styling guide for each space in your abode; consider this your full-spectrum tutorial.
Design Research Studio's limited-edition series of Tom Dixon apartments and restaurant at Greenwich Peninsula, in Southeast London, adeptly executes the colorful trend with high-drama details and sleek modern lines. From quieter silhouettes to pops of metallic, the vivacious, modern vibe is full of energy and sophistication. We love the way even a single iridescent piece can instantly jettison a space into the future.
Dark hues ground the full-spectrum rainbow effect, making sure wilder colorways remain contained and accessible. Embrace the trend in small ways by integrating soulful, spirited accessories in the way of eclectic iridescent lighting and acrylic furnishings.
This glass bookcase by designer Renzo Piano for Teso adds depth, dimension, and color. The translucent trend invites bold tonality into a space without becoming too dense or over-pronounced. Pair with row upon row of colorful design, art, and architecture coffee-table reads and your shelfie game will be next level.
The iridescent pom-pom display for Topshop Oxford Street is giving us some serious party-room envy. For your next dinner party, consider iridescent place settings paired with crisp white linens. The multidimensional hues remind us of what life might be like inside a disco ball.
Tom Dixon's restaurant for East London's Greenwich Peninsula demonstrates the ultimate mastery over the iridescent trends. With spectacular views, unexpected, high-sheen materiality, and a major statement ceiling moment, it's a jewel box in its own right. Get the look with moody, eclectic accessories in rich rainbow sherbet tones.
We love the idea of a subtle bedside table or vanity moment via a single iridescent piece of furniture. Take a page from the Acne Studios Tokyo store and display a piece of important vintage or your favorite fashion accessory as a sculpture in your bedroom space.
Patricia Urquiola's Shimmer Collection for Glas Italia brings youthful exuberance to an all-white space. The delicate, ethereal colorways juxtaposed with organic curves and architectural composition provide a look full of dynamic, feminine allure. The prism effect also brings all the bright and happy vibes.
From a curated bedside table to a bathroom vanity, pepper iridescent accessories throughout your boudoir. A sleek organizational tray or sparkling vase summons a moment of fresh, kinetic cool.
