Lighting trends 2020

World´s leading trade fair Light + Building showcases designs with unusual materials

Light + Building, the world´s leading trade fair for lighting and intelligent building technology, gathers the lighting industry from March 8th until 13th, 2020, in Frankfurt on Main. In their luggage exhibiters will bring along the newest creations and trends – with some surprising surfaces: Leather, textile,  reticulate and ultra-light fabric, paper, cardboard, cork or rubber and also porcelain, ceramics as well as recycled materials are finding their way into luminaire design.

Design paired with comfort
Today luminaires deliver more than light: They realize light ambiences ranging from warm to chilly, from ideal working light to atmospheric candle light – and all is simply dimmed by touch. Dimming not only adjusts the brightness but also the color temperature of light.

What LED will enable in the future
The small bodies of LEDs enable the fusion of luminaires with other functions or products: For example light fixtures of acoustically effective material can absorb noise in open-plan offices. Or luminaires become one with shelf elements. Some designs also have multiple functions, like a luminaire functioning as a vase.

In the Young Design Area emergent designers will present their exclusive single items. Appliance for participation is possible until December 15th, 2019. And finally, orientation in the trend jungle of decorative luminaires will be given in the trend show in hall 6.2.
