How does a room really come into its own? Architect duo YODEZEEN describes lighting as "the brightest and most beautiful element of interior design". Light creates atmosphere, determines how we see, and has a direct impact on our mood. It also characterises our personal style. All the more important is the freedom to design an expressive home lighting design concept. Complementing trends, such as track lighting, new technologies are conquering residential lighting. Dynamic light sequences alternating between cool and warm white adapt to our everyday world just as fluently as sensor-controlled luminaires. The focus is on atmosphere, comfort, and energy efficiency.
"Luminaires should accentuate details and soften a space." YODEZEEN are also increasingly focusing on zonal lighting design and light islands. Optical spotlights, two-dimensional light, and delicate gradations are used for this. Uniform room lighting is every bit as important as exciting points of light. Above all, the visual tasks determine the home lighting design. Modern residential kitchens need great working light and a feel-good ambience; in the bedroom, people relax as well as select their clothes. Its attitude to people is critical for pleasant and functional light. "Because we're talking about places where you can relax and be in the moment."

Light has a unique effect on atmosphere and the feeling of space. For architect Michael Karasek of Baukooperative, it was important to use light to accentuate the space and create places and areas where you can lean back, simply be.
We asked architect duo Artur Sharf and Artem Zverev from YODEZEEN what is particularly important, as well as about the current trends in home lighting design.
Are there any current trends in residential lighting?
Artur Sharf: Ten years ago, we were still doing "naked" ceilings with surface-mounted luminaires. Now we're setting a trend with light tracks – we love them for their flexibility, convenience, and creative freedom.
Which room is your favourite and why?
Artur Sharf: Our favourite room is the one for experiments. But the most important in design is still the primary area, from the entrance to the guest toilet. This is where you first meet the client and draft the design.
Which style element should not be missing from your home?
Artem Zverev: Well, professional embedding. Underlying every element you call "stylish" is something essential: the right architecture. If the planning is coherent, the design also comes into its own.
