darc is the only international magazine focused on decorative and design lighting in architecture for the specification and contract markets.

The specification of decorative and design lighting in hospitality, commercial and residential environments by interior designers, architects and, increasingly, lighting designers is a growing phenomenon worth millions of pounds on an international scale. Advances in technology and design processes has lead to a boom in the amount of product designers getting involved in decorative lighting and this has lead to a surge in the amount of products on the market and projects being completed.

An evolution of the long-running ‘Decorative and Design’ section in sister title, mondo*arc, darc emerged as a fully-fledged magazine in it’s own right in October 2012. We focus on the best quality projects and products and hear from those at the forefront of creative design.

As well as the beautifully presented magazine, which is sent to 12,000 decision makers in the decorative lighting specification and contract market, darc is affiliated with the industry-leading darc awards – the Oscars of the lighting design profession and an event that has created a stir in the lighting industry since its inauguration in 2015.
