Analyzing form language movements

Form Forecast curates design works to synthesis and search for commonalities. Trend relevancy is based on frequency (how often appears) and origin (who and where it was developed). Like fashion, industrial design trends follow a cycle that is constantly growing and updating itself. The mission is to provide signposts to help users create future-forward products. The focus is on near-term practical forecasting, with trends that are present in the media today, often stemming from the latest awards and blogs.
