Trend Alert: Oversized Lighting

Categories: Fashion + Trends, Furniture + Lighting, ICFF 2013

One of the more talked about lighting stories at ICFF 2013 last week was Tom Dixon’s giant laser-cut Punch Ball XL pendant globe, which hung at something like 6 ft in diameter suspended above his booth, keeping watch over the laser cutting equipment that gave birth to it.

Technology notwithstanding, the truth is that we’ve been seeing a trend towards larger and larger, ever more theatrical suspension lighting for some time now, a noticeable exaggeration in scale which keeps presenting us with startling Pop Art-like interior vignettes.

What it means in the long run is unclear, but for now, far from playing a supporting role to sofas and tables, lighting is being given an increasingly outsized role on the home decor stage—and, more than occasionally, the star-making lead.
