Contemporary lighting is about the presentation with simple lines and curves. The current contemporary theme is based on the current trends in design. As a result, the contemporary liquid style is constantly evolving in response to current culture, styles, and development. This, of course, makes it difficult to accurately define the style, but it also allows foursome rule-breaking when combining current elements in interior design. Modern contemporary style is very close to modern design, which is a continuous reference to design in the mid-20th century. Because of these similarities, many people believe that styles are interchangeable. However, while the clear forms of modern design and the clean lines inspired the contemporary style, the style will keep evolving as trends change. An example of this set of Empemade Artemide Empatia lamps was designed by Carlotta De Bevilacqua.
The modern style of lighting can be summarised in three simple words which are geometry, sophistication and clarity. The style originated between the 1950s and 1960s. It consists of solid and neutral colours, intentional symmetry, angles, and natural materials especially wood and stone and era-specific design. Modern style was developed to challenge culture to discover new ways to discover art, think of the world, and reflect the human condition. Ironically, modern art is now considered part of the culture. An example of this style of lighting is the Wiro Diamond light fixture by Weaver and Ducré.
Nature-inspired lighting is a perfect way to create a story of the outdoors in your indoor spaces. It essentially involves, taking a scene or phenomena existing in nature and giving that imagery a tactile feel for it to ornament your space. An example of nature-inspired lighting is the splendid piece by sans Souci called Airy, which depicts a bird’s flight through its shape made by hand-blown glass crystals.
Minimalistic lighting is all about lines, limited colour and absolutely no clutter. It usually serves the purpose of providing natural light and can give the feel of a simple yet bold design. An example of minimalistic lighting is this fixture by Vibia.
The industrial style is inspired by nineteenth-century factory halls. The priority for the interior was stability and utility. We still like this style nowadays. As a result, the minimalist aesthetic may be found in pubs, restaurants, and hotels, as well as, increasingly, in our living rooms. The basic and robust appearance of old factories and industrial buildings is celebrated by industrial lighting. These industrial areas’ lighting was constructed with sturdy, unpolished, and long-lasting materials. The industrial style evolved into a look that is both eye-catching and straightforward by combining these unpolished aspects into more deliberate designs. While some of the fixtures may appear edgy, industrial lighting complements a wide range of interior styles, including modern, rustic, and nautical.
