NOZZLE, an innovative aerodynamic track spot. The most striking newcomer of the Modular range is NOZZLE, which combines technological ingenuity with simple and elegant design. This design by Gerd Couckhuyt, previously responsible for Modular’s Izar, is the clearest proof that Modular is continuing on the path of organic product development. Unlike traditional track spots, NOZZLE consists of one functional unit with two separate components, lamp case and ballast. Harking back to the futurism of the 1920s, the striking, rounded design of NOZZLE looks like the cross section of an eye; the shape streams backwards smoothly into an ellipse and ends in a recessed airing vent. NEW PRODUCTSLOTIS TUBED SURFACELOTIS TUBED, youngest shoot of the Lotis family. The Modular LOTIS family has always been very successful, right from the start. Until now LOTIS was only available as recessed fixture but now LOTIS TUBED changes all that, coming on to the market as a recessed and a surface mounted version. LOTIS TUBED is a design by the Modular Design Team and as such is a thoroughly Modular design. The cylinder-shaped LOTIS TUBED is to be mounted as a ceiling fixture and is available in various contrasting colour combinations (matte black, matte white and gold). The quasi-invisible light source, typical for LOTIS, is carried on in LOTIS TUBED and gives the interplay of colours between interior and exterior an added dimension.

NEW PRODUCTSACE OF DIAMONDSACE OF DIAMONDS is a striking innovation in the Modular range. The choice of material and the distinct contemporary design make ACE a unique decorative ambiance and design element, both for the inside and the outside. ACE OF DIAMONDS is a design by Luc Vincent and the Modular Design Team. The design concept behind ACE starts from the contrast between warmth versus cold: the cold of the material – the block of ice – against the warmth of a light source which determines the ambiance. As its name suggests ‘ACE OF DIAMONDS’ resembles a diamond ice sculpture, with a smooth and transparent surface on the outside and a frosted surface consisting of different facets, irregular shapes and asymmetrical surfaces inside. The matt finish inside ensures that the functional components are not visible whether the LED is switched on or off. NEW PRODUCTSIZARIzar is an innovative but uncharacteristic Modular product with organic, somewhat free-form styling that instantly distinguishes it from the rest of the Modular range. For Modular, Izar represents yet another step in the direction of emphatically organic product development. The most striking feature of Izar is undoubtedly the gently rounded and symmetrical styling, which is employed both on the front and the back of the unit. The design therefore gives the impression that the light is being ‘embraced’.
