With its everyday presence the weather is such a natural part of our lives, yet we hardly ever think about its influence on design. The clothing we wear depends on the weather, it influences our mood and directs our decisions and actions, both small and large. That’s why we’ve decided to take a look at the inextricable link between weather and design in form 278.
