Le Corbusier created the architectural "Modulor" concept, a proportional
vocabulary that responds to the human scale.
Back in the seventies Paul Rudolph, the great modernist architect - amiss
of choices from the lighting industry - was a formative force for Modulightor:
he thought of a correlating concept in lighting: A source that would be
able to create lighting solutions that are corresponding to situation specific
requirements in terms of design, amount of light, dimensions, proportions
and finishes etc..
A few decades have passed and Modulightor has developed a rich line of
products; and it is still doing so - the challenges are myriad.
A modular - adaptable - creative concept of lighting fixture fabrication
that is unparalleled in it's adaptability and versatility, offering architects
and designers a myriad of customized design combinations and creative lighting
solutions. Modulightor products can be tailored to a given situation specific
requirement. With the Modulightor design system you can
select from our standard models as well as customize your lighting needs
to create a custom solution for your architectural space and concept. The
our production capabilities is the engineered component systems which
allow the designer to create and shape lighting that addresses your situation
Choose from our collection of 'standard' models as shown on this web site,
then specify your requirements and we will fabricate the product to your
specifications dimensions, finish, light quality,
electric feed etc.
Our presentation on this site shows one example of the many possible solutions
of each fixture system. Often we fabricate - via mixing and matching, in
a lego-like fashion-, all kinds of other fixture variations that help the
designer to solve a lighting problem by creating a fixture meeting your
special needs. Our staff will be happy to explain the possibilities and
limitations of each particular system. A stream of product possibilities
can be fabricated from our product line, custom designed to your situation
specific requirements in terms of:
