Reminding us that “design is born from and for human needs and desires”, the show will feature many contemporary artists from the world of lighting – not only with finished products for sale, but also supplying the materials with which you can build your own creation and offering advice about how you can transform existing lighting installations in your home. There is also a section dedicated to “Futures” which will showcase many innovative lighting designs from the world of interior decoration.
The world of lighting is changing rapidly due to government initiatives to reduce CO2 emissions which encourage property owners to switch from traditional incandescent lighting to that provided by compact fluorescent light bulbs, and many of the exhibits on display will feature low voltage and energy saving lighting installations.
This is an excellent opportunity for homeowners and local tradesmen alike to witness the up-and-coming styles in domestic electrical lighting installations however, if you are tempted to visit the exhibition, it may be advisable to ensure that you are familiar with electrical building regulations (Part P) in order that you do not spend a fantastic sum of money on an eye-catching feature for your home which you are unable to install. Some low voltage lighting installations do require Part P Approval before using them because of their independent electrical transformers.
