Every exhibition reveals something different, it can give rise to new ideas or show unprecedented needs coming from the market. The direct contact with the visitors, be they regular customers, interested professionals or simple curious, give us the opportunity for an immediate and often fruitful dialogue that helps us to redirect the future projects in the right way.
This year’s Sicam, which took place from 10 to 13 October on the heart of the Furniture District of Livenza, visitors had reached the record number of 8000, between companies and professionals, who came in Pordenone from all over the word. At Domus Line’s booth we had guests from Kuwait, Japan, Sweden, United States, South America, just to mention some. Many were also the Italian visitors that have discovered again the interest and the relevance of this exhibition, also in the odd years, those in direct competition with Interzum. These data confirm Sicam as one of the most relevant and international events in the industry of accessories and components for the furniture sector. Domus Line is very enthusiastic about it, not only because has home court advantage, but especially for the international emphasis that Sicam gives to the territory and to the district of origin of our company.
We have therefore gathered and analysed our impressions about these four days in order to tell you which are the new trends that redesign the details of today’s home for us.
There is no more doubt that smartphones, tablets and smartwatches and other digital devices are truly and integral part of our daily life and that often they make it easier. Why don’t we use them to make home environments also more intelligent? With this idea in mind, we have thought about transforming the phone into a remote control that controls home lighting devices and make them communicate intelligently with each other. During Sicam we presented DOMUS4U (http://www.domus4u.tech), an app designed by Domus Line, that connects to the new X-DRIVER LED converters and that communicates through Bluetooth technology. With DOMUS4U, the smartphone becomes an universal switch for the entire home. DOMUS4U, together with X-DRIVER, allows not only to switch on, switch off and adjust the light intensity or colour temperature, but also allows to organize and simultaneously manage the lights according to the home environment, to the time of the day, to the time of the year or according to the activity, like for example reading, watching TV, having breakfast and so on.
These are all opportunities that, with the easy installation, improve daily comfort.
Black has always been the colour of elegance, but its nuances are now even more trendy. The dark shades finishes, as anthracite, lead-grey and titanium, of the LED devices that we presented at Sicam had received great appreciation from the public that visited our booth. Installing lights gives without doubts functionality and quality to the furnishing, but the right finish of the lighting device gives one more touch of elegance. Black, grey and dark brown tones finishes perfectly integrate in today trendy furnishing.
PURE & ESSENTIAL
In today’s homes we look for a peaceful atmosphere, the furnishings are more essential, colours are lighter and decorations are simple. Lighting devices, that contribute to make the environment cozy, must adapt to this style. During Sicam, the most minimal lighting profiles, that measure just few millimetres width, were the most appreciated. Linear devices like APEX, MISS, LAB and FLEXYLED SE H4 can be integrated in all home furnishing, from the under cabinet to the side of wardrobes. But the design is not enough if doesn’t come together with high performances. The innovative EDGE LED technology and the performing LGP diffuser screens of Domus Line allow concentrating in few millimetres devices with high luminous performance, with no-dot effect and with a diffuse and uniform lighting projection. This powerful stripes of light enhance essential style furnishing.
