lighting design trends

There are some new and exciting explorations of geometric shapes, both minimal and complex, that are becoming signature design elements in many contemporary lighting fixtures.

Check out the fixtures below for some great examples of this hot trend for 2017.

PLANAR PENDANT

The Planar pendant is influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright’s visionary Fallingwater home from the 1930’s. The LED pendant delivers clean, modern, gravity-defying lines that are sure to enhance high-end dining rooms and living rooms. The Planar is also handcrafted using steel at a Vermont forge.

HIVE PENDANT

The bee’s knees.

A delicate three-dimensional weave of steel shows off design inspiration and whimsy. You have the option to choose from two different finishes – one for the light fixture and one for the sculptural element.

CALX PENDANT

The Calx pendant has been an absolute hit in our showroom. The combination of the warm walnut wood, brushed brass and geometric shape are sure to make this pendant a focal point in any space!

Nick Sheridan, designer and a co-founder of Cerno states,

“The Calx is a nice example of modern design where the methods and the materials themselves are integral to its very conception, aligning form and function, which creates a synergy that is evident. The fixture ultimately forms a square aperture but enjoys a beautifully simple faceted structure.”

ANGULAR CAGE PENDANT

A series of geometric cubes set at various angles with a black or silver finish. This pendant provides a great amount of light, has strong visual interest and is easily adaptable to LED technology. There is unexpected elegance to this fixture that you would not find in a basic geometric fixture.

LUNA MIRRORS

If you haven’t seen the Luna mirrors from Fleurco yet, you’re missing out!

Fleurco has been in the industry for 50 years, designing and manufacturing innovative freestanding bathtubs, shower bases, shower doors, and lighted mirrors. In the past months, we have introduce the Halo lighted mirror, and the Sunrize lighted mirror from the Luna Mirror collection.

SUNRIZE MIRROR HALO MIRROR

These lighted mirrors use the latest LED technology which reduces energy consumption, and saves money. But there’s more to the Luna mirrors than LED technology, that make them so alluring:

1) The Brightness

The Halo Lighted mirror can reach a brightness of up to 1725 lumens, while the Sunrize mirror provides 630 lumens. The bright light allows for better visibility for daily tasks.

2) The Colour

Both the Halo and Sunrize mirror have a kelvin temperature of 3500K which leans more towards white or cool tone. This is an ideal colour temperature for bathrooms because it appears brighter to the eyes and gives the impression of a clean space while enhancing contrast.

3) No Fog

Those who are fond of warm baths and showers are familiar with fogged mirrors. These lighted mirrors eliminate the need to clear off a mirror, due to their built-in defogger pads for a fog free reflection.

4) The Look

Lighted mirrors in a bathroom creates a luxury spa feel and enhances the value of a home. The Halo mirror is a back-lit mirror that creates an evenly distributed glow around the mirror. The light accentuates the mirror and brings a sense of depth to a room. The Sunrize emanates light from both the left and right side of the mirror which focuses more on illuminating the face for better visibility especially when grooming and applying makeup.

5) Safety & Warranty

These Luna Mirrors have been tested and certified for safety. They are UL and CUL certified, and IP44 rated. In other words, these lighted mirrors have passed testing to ensure that they are safe to be installed in particular areas of a washroom where they can potentially be exposed to moisture or splashed with water. In addition, these items are backed with a 5 year manufacturers warranty.
