INHABITAT: What kinds of trends are you seeing in terms of lighting and energy management?

AMANDA: Unfortunately I keep seeing those bulbs with the exposed filaments in restaurants and bars from coast to coast. I wish that the owners of those establishments would stop using them—I know they look cool and speak to that retro-industrial vibe that everyone seems to want, but these things aren’t exactly energy efficient. I hope people will think twice before trying to replicate the look at home.

INHABITAT: Dwell is known for looking into the future of home design. What are some of your predictions for home lighting and energy within the next 5-10 years?

AMANDA: I think lighting designers are making great strides in creating pieces that make the most of fluorescent and LED technology. The more attractive options available in the market place, the easier it will be for people to stop hoarding incandescents!

INHABITAT: What are some of the types of exciting breakthroughs in lighting and energy that we can expect to see in the issue?

AMANDA: I love our new Senior Editor Kelsey Keith’s roundup of new lighting pieces, and I think Will Bostwick’s essay on the history of the light bulb is a very good read as well.
