A new look at lighting. Trends 2023

The year 2023 brings a flood of invigorating changes in the sphere of design and everyday philosophy. Under the magnifying glass of designers and architects came lighting, so far often treated as a functional design accessory. A fresh approach gives it due primacy in building the narrative of the interior, as well as creating a comfort zone that supports well-being. The new directions delight in a broad perspective of understanding light.

Lighting has waited many years for these changes. Previously treated as a fashionable complement to interior styling, today it is finally becoming its primary segment. In 2023, it is lighting systems and lamps, with their remarkable design and extremely rich arsenal of functionality, that will determine not only the design convention, but also the innovative attitude towards the environment and achieving emotional balance.

Here are the latest lighting trends you can't go past:

The art of minimalism

This year we are sure to succumb to lighting that delights in simplicity and harmony. The minimalism of the lamps, their subtlety and soothed liveliness, will take us to the heights of design excellence with class and elegance.

The unexaggerated form will be the first to catch the eye and provoke you to let your imagination run wild. Carefully considered aesthetics will become a key element of the decor. Looking at the lamps Solanto or Baris LED, allowing to create unique light compositions, we will easily realize the validity of the idea of less is more.

Proximity to nature

A trend that will run through all spheres of design this year is closeness to nature. The perfectionism and beauty of nature inspire and encourage us to explore what is next to us, to return to our roots and find our place in the world. In the context of lighting, nature will be introduced into the interiors through, among other things, the rounded shapes of lamps, which reflect the gentleness we find in the natural environment. At the same time, we will bet on lamps manufactured with LED technology, which provide high energy efficiency

Taking care of yourself

The undisputed trend of 2023 will be to seek balance in one's immediate environment. Creating a space full of positive energy, shaping mood and soothing emotions is becoming one of the most important needs to be fulfilled.

Creating interiors that provide peace, concentration and a sense of security will be helped by advanced lamp functionalities that adjust light parameters to individual needs and requirements. These will be provided by intelligent functions and lighting management systems like ClueIN designed according to the idea of Human Centric Lighting, which, among other things, adjusts the light emission to the intensity of natural light coming in from outside.

Eco-friendly lighting point

Looking within yourself and achieving inner harmony helps you relax and develop a balance between work, rest and the challenges of everyday life. But equally important this year will be a refreshed view of the planet's affairs and a reevaluation of the rules that have so far governed everyday life. Energy efficiency will gain a new status, becoming a determinant of the decisions and choices we make every day.

Since its inception, Lena Lighting has been producing lamps and lighting management systems inspired by concern for the environment. A prime example is the Clue City system, which is used to manage lighting in a street space, adjusting light emission to current weather conditions and time of day. In a nutshell, the optimal amount of light is delivered only when it is needed.

Leading the way

Can lighting become a leading interior design element? In 2023, it will take over the role of an independent decorator, assuming the position of the center of aesthetic experience. Far behind it will leave the label of accessory or indispensable accessory.

An increasingly common solution is the creation of luminous illuminations on the facades of buildings, which become an expressive message to observers. With outdoor lighting, based on highly energy-efficient LED modules, it is possible to create one-of-a-kind luminous illumination of any solid with minimal electricity consumption.

Achieving such low consumption was possible by using super-efficient luminaires with an integrated LED panel, made of PCB on an aluminum substrate.

A game of colors

Lamps and light fixtures are able to give us a unique atmosphere not only by the color of the light. Color and shape also matter, which, according to interior psychology, translate into our mood. That's why this year one of the hottest trends in the lighting industry is the introduction of bold colors and shades that help trigger emotions and express oneself. It is worth mentioning at this point that the Pantone Institute has declared Viva Magenta 18-1750 as the color of the year.

Intelligence paired with multifunctionality

The role of lamps today is not only to illuminate interiors and create spaces conducive to relaxation or concentration. Advanced parameters provide a wide range of possibilities for action, such as disinfection of rooms.

Sterilon UVC MAX PRO 1200 is the country's first certified lampGMBU, which enhances safety in many medical facilities in Poland and abroad, among others, neutralizing viruses, fungi and bacteria at 99.8%. The device's capacity is 9,000 hours.

UV-C technology is also worth using at home to enjoy healthy air that is purified on a regular basis.

Another novelty is the combination of acoustic panels providing comfortable soundproofing of rooms with energy-saving led lighting.

This year's trends will radically change our perception and inspire significant changes in every sphere of life. It is worth following them and introducing them into your everyday life to make it even more beautiful and responsible.
