Branch Outdoor Lighting from Modular Lighting Instruments

Branch is a true self-build system with which unique configurations can be created according to a user’s own needs. The starting point is always the organic and sloping base structure consisting of lacquered plastic polycarbonate, and available in khaki and mat black structure.
By means of one universal connector, different ‘branches’ can be attached to one another. The organic shape of the unit ensures that Branch becomes one with its surroundings, nature, and in addition to its functional significance, also gives a decorative spirit to the outdoor surroundings. Having the courage to combine, has created an individual, unique tree structure with lateral branches.

Sconfine—Lines, Spheres & Cubes from Zumtobel

“Light lines, light spheres, light cubes – objects clearly defined in terms of geometry, which can be used flexibly according to the principle of modularity. This ensures that every time new lighting units and lighting installations originate, matched to the respective room situation. Carefully composed and accurately defined details create an interplay of brightness, shadow and colours – dynamic tools for interiors addressing people’s emotions.”
- Matteo Thun

The luminaire range includes ceiling-mounted, wall-mounted and pendant luminaires. Chrome in various forms is part of the luminaire design, establishing the creative link throughout the range.
