Stroika’s 2015 Forecast on Lighting Trends

1. Go Solar

Apart from being green products, the new breed of solar lighting solutions are guaranteed to ensure savings on electricity bills. We see this in application with the solar lanterns with new features including mobile phone charging capabilities, garden lights, indoor lighting ( reliant on solar panels) and even security lighting like our outdoor wall lights with motion sensorssolar-motion-lighting_STRKLGHT_032

2. Think Smart

Your mobile phone should be able to control your lighting. If it can’t , you need an upgrade. Your lighting system should be so intuitive that they know when you have left a room or need to get that coat from the back of your closet. We have great installers and fantastic new smart lighting that can be customized for your office, home, car or garden. Contact us here

3. Lead with LED

LED lighting simulate natural daylight, is less harmful to the environment and saves energy compared to incandescent light bulbs. Commercial spaces such offices are now adopting LED panels in favour of the commonplace fluorescent tubes.

New market entrants like the LED strips work well for staircases, corridors, counters and any other suitable surfaces. We see an uptake in these for 2015.

4. Pendant, chandeliers and wall mounted lighting

Previously a reserve of the lounge areas in hotels and homes, these 3 types of lighting are streaming into other common areas including showers, kitchens, bar areas, stairwells and corridors. The designs for these lighting types are ever increasing and clients are constantly in search of affordable but high quality lighting.

The statement chandelier pieces are remarkably in demand for commercial projects and pendant lighting being a star performer in residential housing.

5. Automotive LED lighting

Car lighting for the headlights, interior and body are all going LED. We have had success with our rim stickers which mimic LED.  LED strips, especially for the interior of cars,are a potentially healthy niche market. We see an upsurge in LED in other numerous applications.
