Trends of Product Design – Eco Designs

Green designs or Eco friendly products are an increasingly popular trend in the product design segment of the industry. As the awareness and demand for environmentally friendly products is rapidly increasing, the need for suitable product designs crafted according to the “going green” theme has become almost a mandatory requirement for product manufacturers.

Eco Product Designing

Eco friendly design trends showcase the use of natural themes, shapes, styles and designs, which appeal to the green conscious market while adding a distinct style to the product. Some eco design products are not ecologically sound, but they are designed with an eye to integrate the environment, colours, textures, and themes which give a manufactured product a unique style.

Most products, manufactured with the eco design trend in focus, ensure the use of specific materials, while ensuring minimum wastage of resources during the manufacturing process. The shipping and production process is analysed for possible impact on the environment.

Products which ensure low energy consumption, prohibit the use of dangerous chemicals and use the latest eco friendly technologies in product design and development are manufactured as per the requirements of the eco design trends.

Sustainable Materials

Eco designs focus on the use of salvaged and sustainable materials which ensure the utilization of important renewable resources for manufacturing products. Recyclable and reusable materials like wood and plastic along with other resource options like cork, bamboo, polyester, wool and others are used in eco product designing.

Eco designs have become the most rapidly growing trend in the sector, prompting the need to provide suitably designed and manufactured products to the target market.

5th Dimension Design has worked with a number of clients to develop and design products for their business to create environmental solutions.  The Green Wing by Castpoints is a  great example of a product that actively contributes to environmentally friendly and sustainable farming practices.  You can check out all the Castpoints products and benefits on their website.


Trends of Product Design – Floating Design

With the various product design trends gaining popularity in the industry every day, one of the latest and increasingly popular style trends is the floating design. The floating design is a unique style which offers exclusive product form and features, offering the opportunity to transform a simple product offering into something much more distinctive and exceptional.

Floating Design Trend- The Modern Twist To Product Creation!

This design style offers a singular perception and design of a product, elevating a regular use product and transforming it into a thing of eye catching magnificence and magic. The distinctive “floating look”, exclusive to the design, which is incorporated in the blueprint model of a particular product, is used to add an element illusion and inspire awe from the spectators.

This design is more popularly used in segments which manufacture products for the express purpose of decorating living spaces, while also offering utility and comfort. Furniture, cutlery, lighting fixtures, and even accessories manufacturing sectors of the industry, make use of this intricate and singular product design trend to distinguish their products from others available in the market, and offer a fascinatingly attractive product.

With the popularity of this design trend in some sectors, other segments of the industry are exploring the potential that this design offers, to create attractive products sporting a modern look, which are both highly functional and striking.

The magic and allure captured in products designed with the illusion of floating on air, captivates users and onlookers alike.

Trends of Product Design – Stealth Design

Inspiration for design can come from colours, shapes, history, functionality, environmental objectives, just about anything.  Some products are easy to see the inspiration behind them.  Products influenced by the Stealth Design Trend are fascinating to look at and the ‘Triangle Framework” isn’t always the first thing you notice.

So what defines the Stealth Design Trend?

With the need to attract the attention of the target market, the stealth design is in the list of the top product styles which are being adopted to give a product a retro and unique look.

The stealth look is generally known as the “triangle design” in which the product is designed and crafted in such a way that small or large triangles constitute its main style. The triangular look is used for the design of products which need to showcase precision, improved dynamics, and clarity.

The stealth design is used to give an edgy yet stylish look to a product. The design is inspired by the aircrafts utilizing stealth technology, but the original edgy and ugly style of the triangular design is modified and refined through 3D technology, to give it a smooth, supple yet edgy look which is very attractive.

This design is gaining wide popularity, and is being utilized by manufacturers for product designing in the furniture, technological gadgets, cutlery, accessories, architecture, glassware and even utensil production.

Significance Of The Design

The stealth product design trend is used to signify and project the quality of a product. This unique design is associated by the target market of manufacturers, with luxury trending and fashionable style. This has prompted a number of manufacturers to opt for stealth designs in their products, to attract customer attention and ensure style while minimizing construction requirements.

The cubism look, along with the crystalline and origami, styles are results of the “triangular” stealth design in product planning.

You could be forgiven for thinking that products designed with a stealth aircraft as its influence is a bit of a stretch, check out this collection of products that are all influenced by The Stealth Design Trend.  You might just be surprised.

5th Dimension Design enters the Good Design Awards, Australia

Screen Shot 2014-04-10 at 2.46.33 PM

For the first time, 5th Dimension Design has proudly submitted an entry into the Good Design Awards. The Good Design Awards, hosted by Good Design Australia is Australia’s longest standing national design award and promotion program.

The program is one of the few forums for professional Industrial Designers and manufacturers to showcase their design expertise to national and international audiences. As a result of more than 50 years of design benchmarking, the program focuses on progressively raising the standard of design and innovation in Australia.

5th Dimension Design has worked together with Castpoints to make their idea a reality. Derived from the concept of creating a fixture that performs two functions – direct drilling seed planting and weed control cultivation, The Green Wing was born and launched into the market in 2012. The Green Wing is an innovative solution to a number of problems faced by everyday farmers and delivers a sustainable approach to farming through waste minimisation manufacturing and materials.

Judging is set to begin on the 29th April, with the finalists being announced on the 6th May, 2014.
