The Sebel was the first of our ColorKinetics product launches in the Bay of Plenty/Waikato. It was a excellent chance to show our clients what the product can do. Night trials have to be the best way to show potential clients what can be achieved. Call us Lighting Geeks but its something we at Modus love to do!

We recently had the opportunity to work with noted Auckland based artists Peter and Julie Collis of Collis Studios. They have been working on some of the sculptural lighting that forms part of their new range. The Waka Light, show above was especially interesting to work on with the woven glazed ceramic form offering a fantastic play of light and shadow.
One of the great things about working for Modus is the chance to 'play' with new technology.... at heart we are all lighting geeks! Philips Color Kinetics is a cool product range and we never tire of being able to get into interesting places to play with lights!!! In this case MOTAT........

Well thought out architectural lighting ensures security and visibility in urban environments. The way that we light our cities and our buildings has a huge impact on both the way that we percieve them and the way we feel about our greater environment. New technology offers us the tools to create breathtaking and vivid installations that are both sustainable and reduce light polution.
Modus search out the best available technology for the lighting requirements of each project we undertake. The result of this approach is illustrated in new installation on the Auckland Sky Tower creating a world leading lighting solution.
The final lighting design contains a Phillips Color Kinetics System for the top 1/3 of the tower, with high performance We-ef Metal Halide luminaires lighting the bottom 2/3. Utilising the best available technology and solutions for this project we have achieved a spectacular result that offers increased efficiencies with energy use reduced by 66% overall, and maintenance and spill light dramatically reduced whilst ensuring that the Sky Tower increases it's presence in the Auckland City Skyline.
Check out the video below of the new Color Kinetics LED lighting that Modus installed on the Sky Tower.
