“This year, reusing and up-cycling has been more on-trend than ever, especially with the COVID-19 situation we have all experienced and are still going through. We had already reached a tipping point where an increasing number of people wanted to change the way they consumed products and used objects. Lockdown gave us the opportunity to look at design in a different way, with the reusing and repurposing of furniture and accessories being a big focus.
We have to live alongside this virus now, which is impacting trends, but the main things I feel that will change will be how we maintain buildings and our homes, as well as the materials used, will be easier to clean and maintain.”

Fun Fact: More lighting manufacturers are introducing sustainable practices into their production processes. Luminii is proud to preserve the world it helps illuminate with a robust environmental sustainability policy, which includes recycling as many materials as possible during and after the product manufacturing process. Materials include aluminum extrusions scraps from saw offcuts, aluminum chips from the computer numerical control (CNC) machining process, copper wires, 2 and 4 conductor wires, and paperboard boxes from received goods.
Luminii’s team members, including Mason Barker, Vice President of Product Development, also reevaluate supply chains and distribution channels on a regular basis to cut down on transportation and fuel consumption. These efforts and more support our mission to foster a healthier and brighter future for everyone.
