When Modular met Niko
The belief in shared visions and creative collaborations is deeply rooted in Modular’s DNA. Our newly announced partnership with Niko is the perfect illustration of what we wish to achieve by putting our heads (and products) together. With our Modular lighting, the existing Hue technology and Niko’s wireless switches, we’re able to offer consumers the kind of connected technology that facilitates and enhances their everyday lives.
Niko: bringing innovation to your homes
Just like Modular, Niko is a trendsetter in its field. They’re the expert in switches and smart home technology. And for Niko, functionality always goes hand in hand with sleek and beautiful design. Inspired by this vision, they have been proving that their switches aren’t just a detail in your house, but that they can actually be a great asset for your interior.
A match made in heaven
Apart from complementing each other perfectly in terms of design, Niko and Modular also take each other to the next level when it comes to functionality. Since both brands are part of Signify’s Friends of Hue programme, it was only logical to put two and two together. While Modular has already integrated the Philips Hue technology into its products for some time now, Niko has now developed switches that can easily control any lighting powered by Hue technology. By combining them, we’ve made it possible to control our Modular architectural lighting with Niko’s well-designed switches without any effort.
Using the new and improved Hue app, you can configure the switches suiting your needs: switch your Modular lighting on and off at the touch of a button, dim the lights or select up to four pre-programmed scenes to create a specific mood in your space. All these options are hiding in plain sight, in the physical form of an ultra-sleek Niko Pure switch, available in white steel and black steel.
Being fully wireless, Niko’s switches can freely be mounted on your walls without the need of electrical wiring. And because of their power-harvesting technology, you will never have to replace the batteries or think about maintenance. The switches work wherever, whenever. Design meets functionality.
