Kreon presents: Explore Light and Shadow with Kreon

As light defines shadow, shadow delineates light. In this session we explore the possibilities that can shine on a project bringing an interior to life in all its glory. It’s simply about the best product and placement and Kreon has the answers. Whether it is lighting for the home or office, a cafe or bar, lighting sets the scene and becomes the conduit for better design. As light is integral to living so shadow enhances light but for this to be correct it takes skill and application.

Here, Kreon launches two new products that will ‘light the way’ and all at the flick of a zoom switch.

This is your opportunity to become a King Design Insider and find out everything there is to know about this outstanding furniture manufacturer.
