Lights fascinate. From functionality to style, the design of lighting is an area of design that is in a constant state of flux, with technologies allowing designers to now create lighting that can now manipulate and play with form, establishing the discipline to hold a place very much at the forefront of interior design and architecture. The book maps trends in lighting design over the last decade, featuring over 100 designs from domestic, commercial and architectural settings. Including a vast array of designers and agencies from influential figures including Ross Lovegrove, Ingo Maurer, Philippe Starck, Ron Arad and Tom Dixon to lesser known but emerging dynamic designers, the book is the authoritative guide to contemporary lighting design. As well as showcasing the most dynamic and aesthetically bold work in the discipline, the book also provides a strong critical through-line, exploring lighting design from the perspectives of sustainability, technology, form and structure. With full colour imagery and insightful commentary this is the ultimate guide to the diverse world of contemporary lighting design.
The book presents over 100 beautiful and innovative lighting designs across domestic, commercial and architectural settings, mapping the trends in the discipline over the last decade.
