Modern design refers to original - as opposed to historically referenced - development of minimal forms, from industrial processes, to create functional objects. Modernism is a minimalist approach to honest straight-forward design, rooted in the striving for perfection of the Bauhaus industrial.
Sculptural is a modern style of organic forms that connect functionality with sculptural expression in an original and free-flowing style. In contrast to sharp edges and solid geometric forms, Sculpturalism acclaims a sensuous, soft and fluid continuity of shape and form.
Architectural is a modern style that refers to the context and application of generally more minimal functional expressions of straightforward geometric styles that are intended to attached to or integrate with modern architectural applications.
Contemporary design refers to an eclectic approach to developing modern design from historical and culturally diverse inspirational references. Most notable is the decorative arts movement of the 20th century and the post modernism of architecture of the mid to late 1980s.
Urban Edge is a modern style born of the grit of an urban industrial aesthetic. More an expression of industrial craft than of mass production, its sophisticated edgy character contrasts a crude primitive manner, expressed with extraordinary craftsmanship, within the minimalism of a modern space.
