Trend Theme 04 Supernatural

A new kind of escapism – with unexpected, surrealist, and dreamy elements – is emerging, blending the digital world’s inspiration with a touch of magic and wonder. This aesthetic transformation is driven by the rapid evolution of A.I., offering a fresh perspective that captivates the imagination.

Let’s explore the Supernatural design trend in more detail.




The Supernatural trend is the evolution of the trend presented for 2023 called Digital Escapism.

The “Digital Escapism” trend revolves around immersing oneself in digital experiences as a means of retreating from the real world and explores how digital design can impact physical design.

This trend we developed in 2022 was closely tied to the evolution of the metaverse – a then-novel digital landscape where individuals could create, interact, and engage in real-time experiences. It provided an escape from the limitations of the physical world, enabling users to spend time in a virtual space that reflected or extended real life. Over the next two years, the rapid advancement of A.I. has transformed this theme into a new aesthetic.

While still drawing inspiration from the digital world, it now embraces elements of surrealism and wonder, giving rise to the Supernatural design trend.
