BOLD

Design an architectual wall fixture for the Residential & Hospitality context

Challenge

Since Modular is a brave architectural lighting brand, we wanted to create a fixture inspired by brave architecture. On the other hand we also wanted to design a fixture which respects the interior it’s placed in, so standing out and blending in at the same time.

Solution

The standing out part is reached by its asymmetrical shape and skewed surfaces which create a perspective disorientation. The blending in, on the other hand, is created by its flat linked surfaces which interact with the wall surface and sometimes, under the right angle, even seem to blend with it.

Results

Inspired by the work of Escher as well as some of the most fearless architectural feats of modern times, Bold manipulates your perspective to blend in and stand out at the same time. A Bold fixture is the epitome of daring while playing in harmony with the other stylistic elements of your residential or hospitality space.
