Lighting is undoubtedly one of the most defining elements of an interior space and while a simple drum shade can be enormously convenient and practical, it may be time to look a little closer at the source itself.
Genty Marshall represents a new generation in design trend analysis and forecasting. Within this age of trend-watchers the editing of information to provide a basis for action is a specialised skill. The careful selection of relevant and actionable trends for a diverse range of clients was the guiding principle for Genty to start her own international consultancy, New Black Global Trends.
From low energy light bulbs to cutting-edge OLED technology, the innovation over the past few years into energy saving lighting has produced some dynamic and beautifully resolved designs. Keep an eye out for the stunning work of Beau McClellan when he joins us as a speaker for the International Industry Seminar Series at Decoration + Design, Melbourne from July 19-22. Stay tuned for more details.
