With increasing awareness among people about eco friendly products and green homes, people are orienting themselves towards using eco friendly products and use materials that are readily available in nature and less energy intensive.
Use of Fabric in a different way
There has been a huge revolution in fabric with people becoming more experimental. The trend is towards natural fibers such as cotton, linen and silk as well as to incorporating design, particularly graphic design into the fabric. Concerns on health and safety have led to the manufacture of fire-retardant fabric and the pace of 21st century life has new demands like stain-retardant or spill-retardant features for fabric.
Materials such as Damask, silk, cotton, linen, weaves, textures, Graphic printing, Ancient ethnic prints, floral etc.
Use of Leather
Upper income groups really enjoy using leather and in very popular demand among upper income demographic but not really popular among middle class segment. shine and shimmer and reflecting surfaces are the look of the moment with furniture finished with metallic polish. distributors and retailers have differing views on the use and popularity of leather furniture. Trendy use of Leather Leather is particularly used by designers furniture for the lounge space. reflective surfaces and mirrors as key signature elements. . The new changing trends emphasize on the contemporary style but are moving away from the building materials such as clinical glass.Members of the trade that is the manufacturers. leather and steel to more texture. especially in banks and senior manager’s cabin etc. Appearance matter and materials that Metallic’s. Faux Leather has become quite popular in the market for its convenience and trendy style whereas the pure leather is the only for the upper segment which has high maintenance and does not look as trendy and stylish as the faux leather.
Materials that are being used give a distressed finish. low footprint and eco friendly lighting is catching up with the upper market. gunmetal. Materials such as shiny copper. . use of low energy. bold design and an element of shine and sparkle in almost all product design. A high awareness of products and new lighting techniques is caused an increased demand for the trained designers and architects. The influence of technology on product design is more visible than in the lighting sector. the majority of people are going green and eco-friendly. steel and aluminium. chrome. Since. Wall paper and smoked glass is used to create textures. Lighting Techniques The product design has had a great impact due to development in technology. Grandeur is fashionable and so is a return to luxury in living.Aesthetics and use of new materials There has also been new interest rising among people in Baroque fixtures.
The examples of energy-efficient new materials that follow were developed or studied at Berkeley Lab Gas-Filled Panels Gas-Filled Panels. use thin polymer films and low-conductivity gas to create a device with extraordinary thermal insulation properties. have become very popular these days. Argon gas filling provides an effective thermal resistance level of R-7 per inch. Yellow Light. A new and growing area of research at Berkeley Lab focuses on nanotechnology. or GFPs.New lighting equipment emphasizes on Low energy consumption/power savers. Importance .5 per inch. SOME NEW MATERIALS INTRODUCED Researchers throughout Berkeley Lab are developing new materials for use in the broadest imaginable range of industrial applications. GFPs are essentially hermetic plastic bags that can take on a variety of shapes and sizes. LED. CFL. Inside the outer barrier is a cellular structure called a baffle. Crystal lights. Embedded lighting. decorative glass lighting etc. and xenon gas provides R-20 per inch. krypton gas provides R-12. as well as everyday applications from building materials to biomedicine.
• Energy use of domestic refrigerator/freezers is directly influenced by the overall thermal performance of the cabinet and doors. An advanced thermal insulation technology can improve the efficiency of appliances such as refrigerators. This material is one of the lightest weight solids ever developed. a principal raw material for glass. Uses . and air conditioning equipment. The remaining four percent is a matrix of silica (silicon dioxide). • Insulation materials are critical in buildings designed for low energy use and good thermal comfort. • Will be increasingly important in the future development of cars because significant improvements in gas mileage can be achieved by downsizing the heating. • Waste reduction and higher thermal performance compared to close-cell foam is possible using Gas-Filled Panels • The panels feature low mass and low volume Aerogels Aerogel is a lightweight. ventilation. advanced material that consists of more than 96 percent air.
Luminescent composites with potential opto-electronic applications • • • Better Fuel Cells Berkeley Lab researchers have developed a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) that promises to generate electricity as cheaply as the most efficient gas turbine. lies in replacing ceramic electrodes with stainless-steel-supported electrodes that are stronger. Alternative insulators in appliances such as water heaters and ovens. . refrigerated vehicles and freezer display cases. recyclable alternatives for polyurethane foam in freezers. energy-efficient. easier to manufacture. most importantly.• Environmentally friendly. This latter advantage marks a turning point in the push to develop commercially viable fuel cells. which paves the way for pollution-free power generators that serve neighborhoods and industrial sites. refrigerators. and. Their innovation. Aircraft and aerospace industry applications. cheaper.

People are starting to look at the materials that they are using in their homes more closely. In an attempt to keep their home as green as possible they have started to switch to products which are also being made with environmentally sustainable materials such as bamboo. work surfaces and wall tiles. Many people have seen furniture made with stainless steel frames but now they are being used to create tables and other elements that you can use in a variety of rooms. they are suddenly being used in ways that they never have before. In the past. This can be a fantastic way to bring a clean hit of color into your room while still keeping it looking as modern and cutting edge as possible. wool and even recycled plastic. people were happy to use cabinets and flooring made out of laminated wood but now there has been a trend back to solid wood because some laminated products can release harmful chemicals into the air. Modern rugs made out of leather are not necessarily pieces of hide or skin which are laid on the floor. While this material has been used to cover furniture for many years.
