Retrofuturism

6 May, 2021

An imitation of a future that never actually existed. 

Retro Futurism is a creative movement that focuses on the vision of the future from the past. It is characterized by a mixture of retro elements with futuristic materials and technology. The space age came with the first trip to the moon and spaceships. All these new elements marked a before and after in our way of thinking, creating an image, mixed with technological elements, that today define retro futurism in Interior Design.

This movement was reflected in all artistic fields, like cinema, fashion or design, which inspire us today. Oval shapes or metallic materials that we see in fashion with references such as Pierre Cardin, André Courreges or Paco Rabbane

Our imaginary is full of cinematographic references as well. "2001: A Space Odyssey", the epic science fiction film directed by Stanley Kubrick in 1968, is one of the most illustrative examples of retro futuristic style in cinema references besides "Metropolis" by Frinz Lang.

In “A space Odyssey”, the space interiors are configured through rounded shapes, padding, simplicity and a large number of lights and buttons.

Regarding Interior Design, some designer helped us to build this retro futuristic world like Joe Colombo or Verner Panton. They pay homage to that unrealistic world by making it a reality.

In recent years the concept of retrofuturism has evolved in the world of design to something inverse, with trends such as steampunk, dieselpunk, decopunk or atompunk, and we still cannot imagine how it will evolve next.

We wanted to pay tribute to these design visionaries who have inspired us to design our new pieces through the creative art of retrofuturism.
Can you imagine the design of the future? One day it will be retro futurism. In the meantime, let's continue to enjoy this design utopia.
