Lights fascinate. From functionality to style, the design of lighting is an area of design that is in a constant state of flux, with technologies allowing designers to now create lighting that can now manipulate and play with form, establishing the discipline to hold a place very much at the forefront of interior design and architecture.

The book maps trends in lighting design over the last decade, featuring over 100 designs from domestic, commercial and architectural settings. This beautifully-designed and lavishly-illustrated volume features designs from a vast array of designers and agencies from influential figures including Ross Lovegrove, Ingo Maurer, Philippe Starck, Ron Arad and Tom Dixon to newly-emerging designers.

As well as showcasing the most innovative and aesthetically bold work in the field, Alyn Griffiths’ carefully curated survey also provides a strong critical framework for understanding lighting design from the perspectives of sustainability, technology, form and structure.

With full colour imagery and insightful commentary this is the ultimate guide to the diverse world of contemporary lighting design.
