darc is the only international magazine focused on decorative lighting in architecture for the specification and contract markets. The specification of decorative and design lighting in hospitality, commercial and residential environments by interior designers, architects and lighting designers is a growing phenomenon worth millions of pounds on an international scale. Advances in technology and design processes have lead to a boom in the amount of product designers getting involved in decorative lighting, which has lead to a surge in the amount of products on the market and projects being completed. An evolution of the long-running ‘Decorative & Design’ section in sister title, mondo*arc, darc emerged as a fully-fledged magazine in its own right in October 2012. It focuses on the best quality projects and products and hears from those at the forefront of creative design. Apart from the beautifully presented magazine, darc also has an affiliated website and regular email newsletters as well as the industry-leading darc awards, an event that has created a stir in the lighting industry since it’s inauguration in 2015.
