Walking through the exhibition, one can't help but notice how LED technology has revolutionized the industry with  modern LED wall lights  and so much more. Pictured above and below, you'll notice that wall lighting has evolved beyond its sconce-like torch holding roots to embody a more expansive concept of the wall-as-diffused-light-source.

Due to its avant-garde nature, much of what you'll find at the event has not reached modern lighting retailers, yet designs with technological and natural influences are already available to consumers: Possini Euro White Cloud Triple Light Swag Chandelier Ledino Sail Chrome LED Sconce With all the new looks that we're seeing at Design Miami/Basel, consumers can expect more exciting developments in home lighting in the years to come.  Images: Artsy
