Creating a wall of emotions
We rely on natural light to regulate our waking and sleeping hours, and our mood. In interior environments, such as homes and hospitality settings, artificial light picks up where exterior light leaves off. So, recreating the right ambience and lighting indoors, calls for the perfect balance between different types of light. Functional downlighters, and in fact most lighting from above, tell us it's time to be energized and alert. Softer, seductive wall lighting on the other hand, changes the mood and invites us to get together and relax.
At Modular, we love the special time of day that's unofficially defined by sunset. We characterized it as a blend of cosiness, emotions and inspiration. It’s why we look at wall lighting as a way of accentuating the horizon level and capturing that feeling of warmth and perhaps a glass of wine with friends. Modular explores several options as ideal ways to expose emotions on the wall, be they soft and composed, or artistic and outspoken.
From a façade with character
Art is a catalyst for emotions and we like to include it in our work. We love to stimulate designers and invite them to play with art and feeling for their wall expressions. Inspired by mind-boggling prismatic architecture, Dent is a play of light and shadow. A must-have item in your shortlist. Alive and dynamic from one angle, yet minimalistic and understated from the other. Dent’s slender design highlights its own light when it’s lighted, and its own art when the light is off. With Dent L as part of the family, the 3 sizes and trademark diagonal line will inspire you to create puzzle-like compositions that light a subtle path of light on a wall. Experiment with patterns of white and black, square and rectangular, horizontal and vertical. Draw a soothing directional flow, with the line of one Dent picking up where the other one ends. Dent will never leave you hanging.
Completely off the minimalistic spectrum scale, lies Bold. A unique design commanding attention and emotion. Its light, almost ironically indirect, is beautifully hidden by an intricate, angular design. Play with many of Bold and observe a dynamic shape forming on the wall, itself becoming art in motion. No doubt about it, Bold leaves the onlooker with feeling.
To a wall that says relax
For a more approachable wall luminaire bringing warm lighting indoors and defining intimate spaces, there are plenty of calmer, yet stylish options. The simple, tubular shape of Duell, or the naughtier Trapz inviting interior colour to show a little more. Sulfer expresses a subtle, rectangular shape, while its mysterious cousin, Split, reveals nothing but a sliver of warm light. A selection of anodized colours reminds us of warm sunset tones and offers a natural, warm light. Well-positioned at horizon level, these mood makers will pick up where the sunset whispers have a nice evening.
Enjoy the sunset next time you get the chance. Imagine your wall expression sharing a silent, subtle glow. Maybe it even participates further in the aesthetics of the room as an artistic object of light.
