There’s no question that lighting is a vital aspect of interior design, yet it is too often overlooked – thought of as a boring, less creative part of the design process. However, this month Inex explores a number of projects across the globe where lighting is at the heart of the schemes.
To start your journey of light discovery, turn to page 08 to uncover a new lighting product by Swedish lighting manufacturer ateljé Lyktan in collaboration with London-based creative agency Fourmation. The new modular lighting system, Vault, has endless possibilities for creating different lighting patterns and feature ceiling grids. On page 20, explore Nyx, a rooftop bar named after the Greek goddess of the night. The bar is wrapped in UV reactive cords offering a surreal lighting experience high above central Shanghai. Flick to page 46 to travel from China to Madrid, and discover an underground brick vaulted bar where lighting is crucial. Bala Perdida Club is hidden under a nineteenth-century palace and uses playful lighting and mirrors to make the space feel like an endless tunnel. If you turn to page 64 you’ll escape the enclosed and tiny space of Bala Perdida and discover an expansive outdoor lighting range by Bravo.
