Comfort is the future: from food to design to physical fitness

“After doing nothing, there is no other occupation more attractive than eating Eating well, I mean. One’s appetite is for their stomach, what love is for their heart. An empty stomach is a little sack in which dissatisfaction and envy grumble; on the contrary, a full stomach is the triangle of pleasure,” said Gioachino Rossini, the Italian composer.

Keep in shape having fun

Food is an angelic harmony, to make and enjoy in comfort. Perhaps at home, cooking by hand, or out at a restaurant in a relaxed, informal atmosphere where quality is king. There is nothing better than food that is good for you and that satisfies all types of hunger.
Food can cure the soul. It can also be a form of expression.

With regards to food, design and even fashion, the current trend supports the rediscovery of essence of things and a direct connection with nature.
This translated to stepping back and taking a hard look at our habits and lifestyle. As Einstein once said “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

Comfort Food

These days, people are interested in eating natural foods and home-cooked meals. In terms of interior design, we are searching for ways to bring nature inside one’s home, beginning with materials like wood, stone and natural fabrics. We want furniture that can be assembled, disassembled and reassembles according to our needs.

Li Edelkoort, a Dutch trend forecaster, interprets signals and identifies future trends from his research center, Trend Union. Edelkoort says that the color of the future will be yellow, the symbol of optimism in the face of the recession. He also sees us all in loungewear, or elegant yet stylish clothing. From food, to design, to fashion, comfort is the future.
