Pista: tracks beyond borders

Breaking open the thinking box is what led us to Pista. Welcome to Modular’s 48V magnetic track rail system which shows how sleek aesthetics can be both playful and functional. Sounds exciting? Well yes, it’s now in North America and ready to send your heart racing.
At first glance, you notice Pista’s surprisingly slender design. But there is so much more to Pista than its looks. Pista is the Italian word for racetrack. Even though these tracks aren’t as curvy, they have the same potential for endless configurations. Thanks to a 180° connection module, the track rail can run continuously for quite a while. Add a 90° connection and turn Pista into a right angle, square or rectangle, on the ceiling or wall. Finally, use a flexible connection to create layers of light on one circuit. Designers can play with 3 track rail sizes: 39.4 inch (1000mm), 78.7 inch (2000mm) and 118.1 inch (3000mm).
While you’re busy composing lines of light – LED modules come in 19.7 inch (500mm), 39.4 inch (1000mm), and 59.1 inch (1500mm) – consider sprinkling your design with spotlights on the track itself. Newly introduced are the two miniaturized versions of some of our well-known spot designs: Médard 1.7 and Marbul, in fact Marbulito. The latter comes in both surface or suspended modules, available with a 78.1 inch (2m) long cable for the lovers of high ceilings. Third, our extremely popular family Smart, also has a new spot for you. And for Pista, it comes as Smart 1.9 tubed track, and track suspended, with all 3 designs: Cake, Kup or Lotis. Make your spot selection, click it on the track and slide it wherever you desire. And you’re done.
New to the market
But it’s our new linear LED Night Light module – unique feature in the market – that will be the talk of the town. Leave the light off, and the sleek black Night Light becomes a design element that enhances the geometry of the environment. Turn the light on and the black diffuser produces a smooth and cozy glow that softens the light to create ambience. It’s no overstatement that Pista will be the luminaire of choice for high-end residential environments, intimate retail spaces or hospitality venues
Layers of light
To make your expression even more daring, Pista introduces to the market a twin bracket which makes it possible to feature linear lights next to spot lights using parallel modules. Up to you to create unique symmetrical and asymmetrical light configurations and turn interiors into your own geometrical playground.
In both stylish powder painted black or clean powder painted white, Pista can be installed recessed or surface mounted on both ceiling or wall, or can be suspended. There’s even a surface-mounted box with integrated driver, for challenging spaces or renovation projects. From there on, the configuration is in your hands. Literally. Simply click and slide the different units into the magnetic rails, adjust the tilt of the accent lights and you’re done. You can even add a cut-to-size cover to hide the track.
Pista constantly invites you to create, change, play. You could say that Pista is therefore never truly finished. It’s a work in progress, albeit a pretty one.
