An essential event for understanding MODISS's idiosyncrasy today is the Hanover International Exhibition of 1996. There Mediterranean style came face to face with Central European designs, and the colder north won the first round. This instructive experience channeled MODISS's unique design philosophy, one that is both elegant and synthetic and capable of combining the best of two at first sight contradictory ways of approaching applied art; this can be seen in the 2001, 2002 and 2003 catalogues which show an evolution towards essences which omits trivial components. 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: a 200m2 office space and show room facility in Badalona and another 1700m2 production and storage hub in the strategic logistical location of Martorell.
Since 1995, innovation in each of our designs, the originality in combining materials and forms, and a search for the soul hide spaces has been a constant element in the development of our company. During these few, but intensive years we have made some great achievements, both on national and international level.
The result of all this hard work and dedication, today we have a world distribution network in 60 countries and more than 1500 distributors the length and width of the world. Our presence in the Contract sector is more representative every day. We have numerous international projects thanks to the presence of MODISS products in Hotels, Communities and Organizations.
International recognition during these years has come hand in hand with numerous prizes – some of them as prestigious as the Good Design from The Chicago Athenaeum and the Pinnacle of the American Society of Furniture Designers. Also MODISS is present in the main trade fairs in the sector: EUROLUCE (Milan), Light + Building (Frankfurt), ICFF (New York) ..
