RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We research the aesthetic trends in interior design main stakeholders, such as decorating magazines, journals in design, etc. Our goal was to get the aesthetic trends and transform them into design values to apply to our new luminaire. Our methodology was to observing market and competitors, systematization of findings, and interpretation of the results to synthesize the design guidelines. Also, we sought the integration of design and electronics for a perfect combination of functionality, aesthetics and performance.

CHALLENGE:
Our main concern designing this light fitting was to join performance and aesthetic beauty in one new concept of surface downlight. Also, we aim to provide the fixture with a very remarkable luminous flux to make it able to light up from very high ceilings. Less power consumption, luminous flux, heat dissipation ability, aesthetic beauty and minimal design, have been our achievements.
