Modular Lighting New Catalogue
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.
There is hardly anything more majestic than a large aircraft gliding towards the ground. With a unique light installation, Frankfurt Airport is bringing this elegance to life. Over 325 metres and two storeys, the central element of the exhibition winds its way through the new visitor centre and precisely traces the flight paths and holding patterns of the large jets as they take off and land.
