Light + Building Trends 22+23

LDS LB Trends 400

June 22, 2022

Ambitious climate targets, sustainable raw materials, advancing digitalisation – what moves society is also reflected in trends. In a constantly changing world, values such as authenticity, longevity and responsibility are essential drivers. Accordingly, Light + Building Trends 22+23 stand for freedom and security in complicated times.

Light is the centre of an intelligently connected world. Digitalisation and holistic thinking are changing luminaire design and will strongly  influence it in the future. The designers from the bora.herke.palmisano style agency will present how this is affecting them in daily lectures at Light + Building Autumn Edition in the Design Plaza in Hall 3.1. In addition, the three themes “sensuous + imaginative”, “serious + unfeigned” and “judicious + eminent” are presented in close proximity.

A first look at the three trends:

sensuous + imaginative

The great inspiration of this theme is digital development. Designers use dreamy renderings and visualisations from gaming worlds as models. From this, virtual furniture and luminaires are created that only go into production on demand. The type of aesthetics changes accordingly. There is experimentation; innovative ideas are implemented. The luminaire forms appear as if they have grown out of organic, amorphous silhouettes. Translucent and satin surfaces take the comfortable lighting experience into the diffuse and dematerialised.

serious + unfeigned

Nature is the inner glow of this theme. Accordingly, sustainability plays a major role. Designers use sophisticated material innovations for their holistically conceived designs. Scientific research on this topic is picking up speed. As a result, the variety of materials designers can use for their creations is growing. For example, fruit fibres are used to make cellulose fabrics that are used in lampshades. Sustainability also implies flexibility. Cable-independent luminaires bring light to wherever it is needed. The colour palette is also determined by naturalness: Warm earth and mineral tones refer to the origin of organic life.

judicious + eminent

An elegant, measured style with surprises: The basis is a familiar, geometric design language. Subtle technical details add a touch of novelty. Especially in clear rooms with high design requirements, minimalist lighting objects surprise with interactive sophistication: For example, LED frames can be activated and opened like windows. Classic chandeliers are given new shapes by gravity. Strict lines are balanced out by designers with physical lightness. When it comes to materials, velvety velour looks are predominant. The colour range is elegant with dark and strong nuances, the blue portion is striking. Lighter colours soften linear overall designs.
