Design Trendspotting: Modern Geometry


The bold, angular shapes of the Art Deco movement have made a big comeback in recent years. From bright shapes to origami-inspired patterns, modern geometry offers a clean-cut, edgy style for interiors and a contemporary riff on mid-century modernism.

Geometric patterns

Geometric patterns have been on trend for some time, but in the trend’s current iteration, the focus is on balance. Instead of splashing patterns on every surface, designers are starting simple and incorporating a handful of bold contrasts in their spaces.The key is to be strategic and mindful about where to draw attention.

shape-inspired patterns

To avoid cubism overload, focus on an area of the room and integrate both statement pieces—like a bright throw or chair—alongside more subtle, shape-inspired patterns.

The 3-D Cubes Perforated Grille achieves the ideal balance between sharp geometric features and sophisticated style. 

3D-Cubes Perforated Grille

Using one of the simplest shapes known to man, the cube, this grille delivers a high-impact geometric pattern with a 21st-century twist. Most importantly, its pattern of iterated shapes is designed to facilitate air flow. 

At ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE, we keep our eye on design so that we can provide our clients with metalwork that meets their needs, from grilles to custom pieces. We love it when a client finds a pattern within our vast array of grille designs that perfectly complements their current project, but if the perfect pattern doesn’t exist, we can create it.
