Trends | Posted by Judy Zhou on Tuesday 16 December 2014
As 2014 comes to an end we can't help but reflect on the number of eclectic projects we have undertaken this year. It has become apparent that architects and designers are challenging conventional production techniques and material applications to produce totally unique designs. We have adapted our design approach and employed new manufacturing techniques to achieve the desired results.
1.Bespoke central features
Bespoke central features remain one of the most popular means of making a statement. They are dramatic, eye-catching and can create a long-lasting impression on visitors.
Over the years the industrial style has evolved. It is no longer just a 'warehouse' look. In fact, many designers now incorporate industrial design into many different types of schemes from rustic and earthy to polished and glamorous.

3.Playing on retro
At a time of rapid change and uncertainty, maybe there is some comfort in nostalgia. We are seeing more and more demand for retro-style light fittings.

Brass and other warm-toned metal finishes such as copper, bronze and gold have become more and more popular in recent years – warmth, depth and maybe just a touch of glamour – we believe this trend is set to last.
