It has become evident that many large companies such as Zumtobel, iGuzzini and Targetti (better known for public lighting and commercial spaces lighting) expand to the residential segment. At the fair they showed the new range of fixtures for residential lighting and hospitality. Also it has become popular among the manufacturers to use WarmDim lighting technology – nostalgia for the halogen. The essence of this technology is to reduce the color temperature from warm white to orange when dimmed.
Generally this trend of expanding to the residential segment could be related to the forecast
