Design futures.

Writing, research and editing.

An optimist's look at the future.


Sarah Housley

I'm interested in how we live, how we feel, and the objects and experiences we seek out.

With seven years' experience in trend forecasting, I specialise in design futures, lifestyle and experience, technology, and materials innovation. My writing and research explores subjects ranging from the future of wearable tech to designing for mindfulness; the rise of sensory stretching to the trend for animal architecture. 

At WGSN, I'm Senior Editor - Lifestyle for WGSN Lifestyle & Interiors, a role that includes frequent international travelling - I'm lucky enough to regularly attend CES, SXSW, IFA and Dutch Design Week and the Istanbul Design Biennale - and a lens on sectors including wellness, experience design and consumer electronics. I'm passionate about what's coming next, and why.
