The Trend Forum at Light+Building showcases trends in the home for 2016-2017 and is geared toward designers and architects working in interiors. Four living space sets are on display featuring a color palette and selection of materials that speak to each trend. This year’s four “scenes” designed by bora.herke.palmisano style studio are:

Progressive & Decorative
The ‘Progressive & Decorative’ scenario creates surprise by juxtaposing progressive product development and decorative aesthetics. The style combines futuristic and decoratively glitzy elements with craftsmanship and new technologies.

Liberal & Manifold
The ‘Liberal & Manifold’ theme combines multifarious, original ideas in an open and unconstrained way. This multifaceted, young style rejuvenates the world we know, refreshes retro features and, in so doing, creates something new.

Ingenious & Significant
This style impresses us with clever and minimalistic solutions producing standout lighting effects. Architectural purism combines with innovative concepts, aesthetic perfection and new design to create a lighting effect that blows us away.

Pristine & Desirable
Inspiration comes from nature and the botanical world for this style to create poetical and emotionally desirable designs. It is infused with allusions of nature: in organic forms, in the spectrum of natural colors and the world of bud, leaf and plat motifs.
