darc is the only international magazine focused on decorative lighting in architecture and interior design. The specification of decorative and design lighting in hospitality, leisure, 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. darc emerged in October 2012 and has continued to grow at a fast pace ever since. 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 has a strong online presence through a dedicated website, regular newsletters and social media. Alongside this, the team organises the annual darc awards - celebrating the best in lighting and darc room - a dedicated lighting specification event, held during London Design Festival.
