It comes as no surprise then that topics such as holistic thinking, future products and recycling are omnipresent in all areas of design. These can also be clearly seen in lighting design, but new materials and innovative processing techniques are often needed to implement these aims. In this respect, working materials that are either particularly durable or that can be easily returned to the resource cycle are also experiencing a renaissance. Stone is an example of this, as are wood and metal. In addition, designers like to work with alternative raw materials, such as bioplastics. Another trend: digital technology is increasingly meeting the needs of modern users as the centrepiece of modern lighting design –even if light fixtures are kept classic in style. This is made possible with ever more delicate and powerful LED and OLED lights.
