Next up in our week of Filipino design trends is wire. This hard and durable material is made lightweight and airy by these inventive designs. Often inspired by 3D computer software, this trend enables designers to create big, bold shapes while maintaining an ethereal transparency.

This year we are so excited to be one of the sponsors of the Alt Design Summit in Salt Lake City. As part of the fun we'll be hosting a party, and our theme is Tinsel and Timber! It's a celebration of the meeting of rustic and glam, shiny and matte, city and country. Our very own blogger Brita Olsen is styling the event, doing everything from selecting cocktails to designing an über-fun environment for bloggers to meet, mingle and get creative!
Below are Brita's mood boards for the three distinct spaces of our Tinsel and Timber party. If you will be at Alt Summit, come say hi! If not, check back in for all of the updates to this blogger extravaganza!
