When a lot of people think about what to make next in terms of lighting, I think a lot fall into the trap of styling a different look for a lamp, yet it would still be a reading lamp or some sort of floor lamp. I have to say that I fall into that camp as well, but the trending today certainly doesn’t indicate that is the future.
Projects like this are where lighting will go. Lighting will become certainly interactive or at the very least temporally andsituationally reactive. The world will probably see more lighting that’s configurable to spaces, rather than standardized sizes.
Lighting has the capability to enhance moods of rooms far more than clever casings and tinted shades can do. The intersection with electronics will push the field to become more flexible and organic.
