Modo is an architectural and product design firm based in Barcelona that has just released a series of new products.

Velvet embraces within itself the warmth of light and projects outward the beams created by shade. A flash of light captures the gaze and captivates the spectators. Velvet is a reflection of its own light.

An elegant product that rethinks basic conventions in lamp design and subtly recreates the interplay of light and shade. The design of its structure is both form and function: it keeps light inside and filters out the shade.

Join is a new concept designed to organize the space easily. One single module allows many compositions, and favors different visual perspectives through its unique geometry.

The final compositions vary depending on the spectator viewpoint, introducing a “show and hide” aspect.

“The form between the volumes is more important than the volumes themselves”; this defines the basic idea behind the design of Mass. Mass is a a set of four volumes that deal with the possibility of moving, stacking, joining or turning them in order to generate different uses.

Mass is not conceived to be static, but dynamic and changeable, providing spatial and volumetric richness to the environment where it is placed.
