In the field of lighting design, the modern style is distinguished by sobriety and elegance. Modern designer lamps are characterised by clean lines, simple geometries and neutral colours, so they are extremely versatile and suitable for lighting projects for private homes, accommodations and restaurants.
In addition to creating an impactful effect, modern style lighting solutions ensure direct and uniform light for the whole space and are also suitable for providing the right brightness to workstations and decorative elements.
Modern style lamps are true stylistic statements that fit into any furnishing context, without making a disturbance, as they are devoid of any aesthetic mannerisms.
The essential shapes and the sculptural linearity fascinate the observer's gaze and satisfy the stylistic requirements of modern taste.

Modern designer lamps: 4 factors to consider
To choose the modern designer lamps that best fit the lighting project you are working on, you should consider 4 basic points:
1. Room size
The first step in setting up your lighting design project correctly is to select lighting solutions based on the dimensions of the interior where they will be installed.
A lamp of ample size or, on the contrary, too small would not blend harmoniously with the room and its spaces, overloading or reducing the aesthetic charge of the environment.
2. Ceiling height
In addition to the dimensions, the ceiling height is also an important element to consider when choosing the right lamp model.
Suspension lamps are suitable to fill spaces with a high ceiling, while rooms with low ceilings should have ceiling lights, intuitive and small.
3. Energy saving: LED
Modern style lighting is devoted to saving energy and therefore to the frequent use of LED lights.
Using LED lamps means lower energy consumption and lower costs: choosing them or not as lighting sources depends on the client and the type of solution they choose.
4. Silhouette, material and colour of lighting fixtures
Finally, it is necessary to identify lamps that meet the stylistic and functional characteristics of the modern style.
Choose lamps with linear silhouettes and sober colours, made with shiny and resistant materials, such as glass, metal and steel, to mention those used the most.
Why you should choose modern designer lamps for your project
Solutions with a functional design and bare of any aesthetic excess, devoted to extreme cleanliness, but still of great ornamental presence. Modern designer lamps are the concrete result of mature stylistic research based on elegance and simplicity.
The refinement of the shapes and the sharp but sophisticated lines are singular characteristics that make these types of lamps versatile and, as a result, able to merge with the furnishing complex in any context.
The modern style is often associated with neutral sensations, not very stimulating, and the cold and aseptic perception of a space. That is an incorrect and misleading conception because modern-style lighting solutions are able to communicate in a special way through light, infusing a pleasant and welcoming atmosphere.
When Karman's creative design blends with modern style, surprising lighting ideas are born, distinguished by originality and innovation.
The added value given by the unique stylistic touch of Karman’s designers respects the aesthetic needs of modern taste without distorting the essence, indeed enhancing its uniqueness.
Include modern designer lamps by Karman in your lighting design project for hotels, private homes or restaurants, with the ultimate aim of giving light to every environment in a simple, fresh and elegant way.
