Design Gone Digital

With the latest mobile technology getting more advanced every minute, people have to stay up to date with the newest trends. We are seeing more and more digitally-based design tools with each new smart phone, tablet and other Internet accessing device. Check out some of these 21st Century ideas that are changing design:

QR Codes

This year at NeoCon, QR (Quick Response) Codes were popping up in multiple showrooms, giving onlookers a fast way to scan the code and be brought to a website for more information.

FurnitureLab was showcasing their chair (left) with a large QR code printed on the back. The concept behind the chair is that a person can scan their seat before taking it and receive information from the place it’s located (i.e. school or hotel). Some showrooms were even using QR Codes as art, with a small QR Code at the bottom to scan, of course.
