"Choosing what products to make or sell involves a great deal of risk, uncertainty and many sleepless nights.  Imagine what your business would look like if you knew exactly what your customers wanted to buy up to two years in advance. Your risks would be minimal and your costs totally under control. You could be offering the Right Products, at the Right Time ... all of the time." Phil Pond, Scarlet Opus

Scarlet Opus has also released their A/W20/21 Visionary as a free trend report download.

Created prior to the current pandemic, the trend is still very relevant in these current circumstances. Visionary empowers a Utopian way of life, where people, nature, and technology harmoniously work together to create a world where health and happiness are at the forefront. An aesthetic with considerations to material use, digital innovations, and sustainability; nurturing an optimistic view of the future… hoping for and expecting something better.

We hope the insights in this Trend Report will encourage designers, architects, and creatives to explore new possibilities; to reach out and embrace the future and acknowledge the essentialness of human connection and kindness in the quest for happiness. The 14-page report provides an aesthetic direction, inspiration, information, and ideation for product manufacturers, architects, interior designers, home & urban developers, and marketing strategists.
