The Future of Materials in Lighting – Decorex 2022

Decorex invited darc magazine to host a talk at its 2022 show in London, UK. Unfortunately due to Covid, darc magazine’s editor Sarah Cullen was unable to host the discussion. Andy Bishop, Creative Director of Informa, kindly stepped in to moderate the discussion between James Bassant, Co-owner and Design Director of British lighting brand Astro, and Ehab Sayed, Founder and Director of Innovations at Biohm.  The discussion revolved around the topic of materials and their usages in lighting product design and manufacturing in the future, as well as what’s being taken into consideration when specifying these future-proof products in projects. Ideas covered included sustainability, product longevity, environmental impact, and industry trends.
