|The enormous success of Modiss lights at domestic and international Fairs and Shows has enabled the company to grow, calling for ever larger installations culminating in the move to its current locations in Poblenou and in Martorell. Over the years Modiss has put in place a stable policy of expanding and modernizing its processes which means that it can be optimistic about the future. Its increasingly significant presence at industry events and the interest its products generate among both professionals and consumers serve to support its firm commitment to exclusive designs, quality and service. |
Modiss's history goes back to 1994, the year whenAlfonso Fontal entered lights he'd made while studying Industrial Design for the Primavera del Diseño competition. Somewhat to his surprise (but not, however, to that of people who knew about his talent) his work was selected for display in Barcelona's Palau de la Virreina.
This public recognition prompted Alfonso to make his first lights with mirror and stand accessories using craft techniques, lights which were launched onto the market at the International Lighting Fair. Although the stand he had there was small, its success exceeded all expectations so he decided to set up a team of enthusiastic young professionals who joined forces to found Modiss Iluminación, S.L. and make it into an industry benchmark.
