Positively opinionated. Don’t believe in blending in. Always leading the discussion. Modular Lighting Instruments has been making high quality architectural lighting with attitude since 1980.
Architectural lighting is about finding the right balance. Between the aesthetic appeal of a space and the function and quality of the light. In other words, creating architectural beauty but also making sure that it serves our needs.
So that we can function at our best in a specific environment.
CHOOSING ARCHITECTURAL LIGHTING.
Apart from the architectural space itself, the luminaire choices of the architect or interior designer depend on many other factors. Like the concept or purpose of the space, and the creative mind of the designer. Every designer you ask will come up with a different lighting solution for the same space.
We believe that lighting should be empowering. That’s why our light fixtures help designers to create new options and original configurations. The modular lighting idea is that one light fixture isn’t just one light fixture. One single product design serves multiple purposes. Breaking set ideas about which lights and where.
ALL ARCHITECTURAL LIGHTS ARE NOT EQUAL
What sets Modular Lighting Instruments apart? It’s about finding the perfect balance between innovative design, expanding applications, and using the latest technology.
Design in extreme detail.
When we talk about design, we don’t just mean the overall product design. We are obsessed by detail. It’s the things you might not notice that are most important to us. We never stop thinking about how we can make a product better. Using magnetic plates to hide wires and screws. Anodization for a smoother colour execution on aluminium. Powder finishing for structured colours. It's the small things that make all the difference.
Application. One is many.
The modular approach to function, shape, colours and finishes offers the designer inspiring and unlimited options. We are continuously extending product families and finding new applications.
We always think ahead, especially in terms of technology. We offer only highly efficient LED lighting units. As well as a standard CRI 90 for all colour temperatures. Which is not standard at all. For customer convenience: different colour temperatures are available for all products. In other words, it’s not something you have to request.
It’s because we care about providing superior quality that we design and make products in-house. That’s why we make our own reflectors. We can use aluminium rather than the plastic that many other companies use. Doing it our-self guarantees greater flexibility and the ability to customize all our designs.
Kompas & Hoolahoop
Kompas is an answer many interior professionals have been looking for. Many lights for the whole room, on just one power source. Our attractive circles invite your imagination to compose a unique chandelier. Make your chandelier even more expressive by adding a ring: Hoolahoop.
One of the spot families that put us on the map, Lotis is always a good choice. Several smart lighting options are now available for Lotis 82, and wait until you see the list of new colour finishes. Add a unique touch to your space.
With a name derived from the Latin word for “ruler”, the Rektor range of LED lighting has every quality of a leader. Rektor’s refined industrial, rectangular design is also an option for our 230V track system, making it an even more attractive and relevant choice for retail and hospitality spaces.
Unique in our product families, Modupoint is a stand-alone, easy-to-install luminaire system. A surface-mounted ceiling base with power points welcoming a playful variety of plug-in lights and levels. Thanks to its modern LED technology that makes it possible to enjoy more and more miniaturised designs, Modupoint invites designers to go full swing with miniaturisation trends in many more of their projects with our spherical Marbulito, flexible Médard, and stylish Minude.
We had a bit of a game in mind when we designed our recessed spot, Tetrix. Playing with pieces, fitting them together in all kinds of intricate ways. Easy to play with, and for everyone. Tetrix invites you to give it your personal touch with design options and accessories. It’s versatile, fits everywhere, and is a breeze to install.
Our miniature spot is an extremely simple cylinder-shaped light fixture with a lot to show. Endless applications, a variety of rich colours, phenomenal yogic flexibility. A deep-recessed light source for a glare-free light effect. To express a refined and minimalistic look & feel on walls or low ceiling executions, on high ceilings in its suspended variant, or to add on, as a stylish accent on our Pista track system. This little spot will make a big impression.
With its gentle curves, Duell gives every room a softer touch. The double-walled housing allows you to play with colour. On the outside, you’ll enjoy extra choices of anodised black, bronze, silver bronze and champagne, while the inside is available in black, champagne and aluminium.
Strong lines to bring vertical structure to your space, Extruded takes its own place. Its small looped hook at the tip peeks out subtly. The graceful lines that carve the outside of Extruded's tube never fail to capture your curiosity. All the way at the bottom, the conical lampshade offers a well-defined, flood beam of light, inviting intimate dialogue.
A member of our minimalist Sulfer family, Sulfer uplight brings you the indirect uplight you've been waiting for. A wall-mounted luminaire, Sulfer uplight is installed perpendicular to the wall. Its powerful LED provides a generous, indirect flood beam upward and reflects off the wall, as well as off the ceiling, offering a secondary, softer and wider light beam.
SLD50: an extremely thin (50 mm wide) profile that integrates Modular’s Eyeball – a small yet highly powerful, adjustable spot that is 360° rotable and 30° adjustable in both directions. Its sleek design makes SLD50 a perfect solution for office lighting, as well as for private homes and hospitality environments.
Shellby for general lighting and Shellby for creating mood. A clash of functions, yet the exceptional coexistence of purpose. Sun or moon? Definitely both. Powerful from above, it indisputably lights and energizes daily activities. Softer and a little to the side, it exudes calm and warmth. Shellby’s playful and asymmetrical design, plus a choice of rich colours with new click-in skins, invite you to experiment with aesthetic and light effects to charm the entire room.
For designer James Van Vossel, it was time to rethink pure, simple forms. That’s when the tube came in. And out. Hollow reignites the excitement and mystery surrounding this classical shape. How does it work? Where’s the light coming from? Hollow won’t be revealed until you touch it.
