An unconventional futuristic design language gives a fresh take on everyday home objects

What do you think defines a futuristic product? Is it always technologically integrated, curved, angular, metal, plastic, or leather? I feel like one must think about the intent of the product and signify that through their design. Ocean White is a collection that showcases a range of meticulously crafted objects that embody this approach. By employing translucent materials, Ocean White has achieved a harmonious blend of comfort and beauty. With a strong focus on futurism and the essence of each product, this collection offers a glimpse into a world where functionality and aesthetics coexist seamlessly.

Ocean White’s primary objective in creating the fourth collection was to prioritize natural and comfortable materials that play a crucial role in our everyday lives. The designers have successfully accomplished this by incorporating translucent materials into the product range. This choice allows the objects to exude an ethereal quality, evoking a sense of serenity and tranquility. By embracing transparency, Ocean White delivers a unique experience where functionality meets elegance.

The fourth collection consists of 8 products:

1. Easel

The easel from Ocean White’s fourth collection showcases the brand’s commitment to combining comfort and beauty. With its translucent design, it allows the viewer to focus on the art piece in isolation and appreciate it better. If not, the easel becomes an art piece in itself, providing artists with an inspiring backdrop for their creativity.

2. Partition

The partition stands as a testament to Ocean White’s dedication to creating harmonious spaces. The translucent nature of the partition allows light to filter through, adding an ethereal touch to any environment while maintaining privacy.

The pen tray combines functionality and aesthetics effortlessly. Its translucent construction offers a captivating display, ensuring that even mundane tasks become visually appealing.

By utilizing translucent materials, the diffuser creates a soothing ambiance while releasing fragrances that elevate the atmosphere. The diffuser serves as both a practical home accessory and an elegant decorative piece in a variety of 3 finishes to blend in with your style.

In Ocean White’s philosophy, the more futuristic a design is, the closer it should be to the intrinsic nature of objects. With this in mind, the fourth collection incorporates light as its medium, encouraging users to focus on the essence of each product. By emphasizing simplicity and functionality, Ocean White presents a visually stunning and futuristic design language.

8. Sign

The sign exhibits a futuristic design while remaining functional and versatile. The translucent signage creates a mesmerizing effect when illuminated, making it a visually striking addition to any space. However, the legibility of the text gets hampered, defeating the purpose of the signage. They could consider reducing the intensity of illumination.
