Light not only provides illumination but also creates an atmosphere, so it plays a special role in the interior design of living and working spaces. At the upcoming interzum fair, exhibitors will be showing how furniture and rooms can be made to shine.

Whether creating an atmospheric ambience or illuminating specific areas, light shapes the design of interior spaces. And in doing so, lighting solutions nowadays have to meet a lot of different demands. Home and work life are merging. New functions are coming to the fore. Considerations such as energy efficiency and sustainability are gaining importance. Demands on design and technology have also increased. Exhibitors at interzum are reacting to these trends with luminaires, lighting systems, sensors and other products for contemporary approaches to lighting.

The lighting solutions on show at interzum offer new possibilities for home and work life. Whether as built-in luminaires in furniture or light sources on walls and ceilings, they create an effective setting in rooms and specific areas within rooms. Exhibitors at the fair will be offering a wide range of lighting products: extremely small and lightweight under-unit lights for use in cabinets, track lighting for bookshelves, fluorescent storage surfaces and mini profiles for furniture and installations.

Above all, technical innovations such as LED and OLED offer new options in lighting, which have enabled the lighting industry to grow at a particularly rapid pace in recent years. By virtue of their extremely compact design and high energy efficiency alone, LEDs are versatile components in the design of furniture and interiors. As light sources in living and working spaces, in shopfitting and other sectors, they impress with their adaptability and particularly long operating life. At interzum, the latest developments will be shown, from tailor-made, planar LEDs through to self-adhesive, flexible LED strips for a wide range of uses.
With its numerous new lighting solutions for furniture and interiors, interzum is an inspiring platform for designers, lighting planners, interior architects, contract fitters and other specialists. Technological innovations on show at the fair make previously impossible product solutions possible. Exhibitors will make the whole range of modern lighting shine with their presentations.
