Sinuous Ceiling Fixtures

Nomad Modular Lighting Can be Fastened into Fluid Arrangements

— December 10, 2011 — Art & Design
To throw off the rigid right angle geometries of the modern office, Nomad Modular Lighting can be installed to take on the most original and organic shapes below those boring rectangular ceiling tiles. The sleek circular lamps may be affixed along arbitrary trajectories or more logical service lines, creating a sense of smooth continuity without requiring a great degree of permanence.

The graceful Emre Girgin concept is the result of a collaboration with Arlight and Artful Design Studio which establishes a spatial freedom that few illuminators are afforded. The electrical connection needs only be set up directly through the first fixture in a Nomad Modular Lighting series because a line of wires links each together, concealed by thin curving plates. The elegant system can adapt to unlimited variations of meandering formations.
Trend Themes
1. Modular Lighting - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Develop modular lighting systems that can be easily rearranged and adapted to various configurations, providing flexibility and creativity in office spaces.

3. Spatial Freedom - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Create lighting solutions that offer spatial freedom, allowing for unlimited variations of meandering formations, enabling architects and designers to create unique and dynamic spaces.

2. Interior Design - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Integrate unconventional lighting fixtures into interior design projects to create visually stunning and functional spaces that defy traditional design norms.
