The world of lighting is like an unstoppable express train. Technical innovations follow each other in quick succession. We sometimes forget that we mainly lit our homes with gas or oil up to the middle of the 20th century. And look where we are now.
We can’t wait to see what the next decades will bring. It is practically impossible to predict what the future of lighting will look like. But, on the basis of various trends, we may try our luck.
Days are getting shorter, temperatures are dropping, Christmas decorations are everywhere, and the tear-off calendar doesn’t have many pages left. 2017 is clearly coming to an end. The perfect time to look back on a year full of handy, inspirational, and attractive blogs. These 10 articles are the ones you have read the most often:
Osram is one of the more than 100 brands in our webshop. The company primarily produces lamps. And not just for buildings, but for cars as well. Eviyos is one of the newest concepts that Osram uses to make car lighting more efficient and smarter.
Verner Panton was born ninety years ago in the Danish town of Gentofte. No one would have thought he would become the enfant terrible of Danish design. Today we can safely say he’s had a major impact. Almost two decades after his death, his most popular pieces are still being manufactured.

Earlier this year we’ve taken a look inside restaurants and bars for Louis Poulsen fans. In the hospitality industry, lighting is rather important. Not only does it have to be functional, but it should also add esthetical value, because a nice and cozy interior is one of the reasons why people choose a particular restaurant, bar or hotel.
Below are some nice examples of places who perfectly integrated designer lighting . Maybe you can find some inspiration for your own interior.
What if I asked you to name a dozen male designers, architects or artists? Chances are you’ll need only a few minutes to write down an entire list of names. But what if I would ask you to do the same for their female counterparts? Most probably, your list will be a whole lot shorter. That’s a shame, ’cause a bunch of the designs on the dmLights website wouldn’t have existed if it wasn’t for their female creators. That’s why we would like to pay tribute to the creative women behind some of the most iconic designs in our range.
Last year we already discussed some creative lighting concepts which are becoming reality. Meanwhile, the world of design didn’t stop turning. In the last couple of months we saw a lot of interesting concepts and prototypes again. We’ve listed up some of our favourites.
