2019 was the last time Euroluce was able to illuminate at the Salone del Mobile fair in Milan, Italy; and we were so glad to see it! 315 lighting exhibitors in total showcased their lighting families at the iconic show last month, including many with new and wonderful design creations.
Most notably seen and discussed at this years show was the ongoing trend and evolution of smart and human-centric lighting. Sensors, network connections and wireless technologies for control and monitoring of lighting, as well solutions that adjust intensity of fixtures, according to natural light in spaces, continue to be king.
Growing in interest, with a notable evolution, is the integration of IoT (i) control systems that is embracing the digital world, and with the first applications of LiFi (Light Fidelity) technology already available - LEDs for wireless data transmission (ii) is a leveraging modulation that could become common place - very soon.
Let’s just say, light fixture function is taking on a whole lot more these days! If you want to learn how to incorporate IoT concepts into your new projects lighting scheme - send us a message! For now though, let’s look at how new lighting LOOKED at the show, and beyond.
This updated family by Vesoi is the evolution and a redesign of a classic lighting expression of the 60’s. Iconic, sophisticated, elegant technological chandelier that comes in a large pendant or smaller ceiling version. Wall mounted version coming soon.
Vesoi specifies the DF light fixtures as "…it is what it is and ain't nothing else…” But what it is ~ is a modular wall/ceiling luminaire about light, colour and space. Organized and not-organized. A sectional and modular structural elements from 50 to 200cm long, which light up just enough in primary colours or in fusions between them: creations of bicolor is the result of research into simplicity that involves and fascinates the observer. It’s not a luminaire- it’s a sensation!
The DF is Vesoi’s tribute to the American artist of minimalism, Dan Flavin, famous for creating sculptural objects and installations of fluorescent bulb fixtures.
Leucos is always sure to introduce items that are sure to be classics! Their new Aurelia is a collection of suspension lamps of a handblown glass diffuser surrounding a metal structure that houses two direct and indirect LED light sources. Independently dimmable, the two light sources offer the possibility of single or simultaneous switching, creating direct soft light and surprising and unexpected indirect reflections. Aurelia is available in two different shapes and sizes and six combinations of glass colors (transparent or smoke gray) and metal structure (hand-finished vintage brass or matt gunmetal, and glossy warm white) with matching canopy. The LED light source can be easily replaced by the user. A smart disassembly system allows for an easy maintenance and cleaning of the glass diffuser.
DarkatNight was not at the show this year, but they have been very busy releasing a handful of new products worth mentioning! Here's a few we'd like to highlight:
