Modular awarded Henry van de Velde Label 2008

(Belgium) - Modular Lighting Instruments, the leading manufacturer and distributor of high-end architectural designer lighting, has been awarded for the design of its product BRANCH at the Henry van de Velde Awards and Labels 2008 in the Flemish Parliament, Belgium.

Designed by Rotorgroup for Modular Lighting Instruments and launched at Light + Building 2008, BRANCH is an eye-catching addition to Modular's exterior lighting range, Modular Green®. BRANCH produces a unique tree structure with lateral branches time and again, which is based in every case on the organic (in khaki or matt black textured) in painted plastic.

The unique BRANCH self-assembly system enables unique configurations to be recreated. Different BRANCHes with or without a light source fitted can be attached to one another in turn using a universal connecting piece. The light source is located in the lateral branch – capable of swivelling horizontally about its central axis as well as being directed upwards or downwards – or in the top of the unit, positioned centrally in the housing.

The flexibility of the system and the incorporation of various light sources (ice white LED 6x1W, warm white LED 6x1W, CFL PAR30 and CDM-R PAR30) enable BRANCH to be used for numerous applications: path lighting, background lighting, and outside wall lighting.

The Henry van de Velde Labels are an initiative by Design Vlaanderen and are awarded by a dedicated jury drawn from the industry to items that embody authenticity, drive for innovation, creativity, finish and added value for the product.

“The qualities that the jury are looking for are those we try to consistently aim for in our product design. We are therefore naturally delighted and honoured that we have been awarded for BRANCH. It is at the same time a reward for our innovative approach in outdoor lighting,” commented Lieven Messiaen, CEO of Modular Lighting Instruments.
