midgard modular

midgard modular is a configurable system of desk-, wall-, ceiling- or floorlamps.

from three standard colours as well as length and amount of arms and over five different lampshades to choose, the 3D configurator offers over 10k possibilities to create an individualized midgard.

the design of the modular lamp is based on the well-known no. 113 and no. 114 adjustable lamps, with which, among others, the many spaces in the bauhaus was been equipped.


midgard, leaded by curt fischer, developed this modular draft into a system during the 1920s to answer all needs of lighting within private and public life.

the modular lighting system is based on two different fixture possibilities.
