Lighting Design Trends 2020: Minimalism, geometry, black

An ancient Greek philosopher once said: “Everything flows, everything changes”. The world of lighting design is no exception. It is reacting to the changes in society – the desire for comfort, freedom, multidimensionality, and functionality. These trends are reflected in the lighting fixtures created by the world’s best designers in 2020.

Speaking of modern lighting fixtures, there are a number of trends that are clearly visible today.

Minimalism

This is the main trend in the world of lighting design. A person seeks to get rid of unnecessary things and focus on the main ones. Following these aspirations, the designers create luminaires of strict shapes, wide functionality, and stylistic brightness.
