Sammode is launching a whole new revolution: the iconic round tube is going square,  or nearly…

Architect and designer Jean-Michel Wilmotte has redesigned Sammode’s famous tubular  lamp: let us introduce this new luminaire. Presenting the Quadratube. The Quadratube still has  all the smart features of Jean-Michel Wilmotte’s original design, but now it also boasts modern  technology and outstanding manufacturing. The aim is to provide top quality visual comfort and  lighting. 

Thanks to Quadratube, we have been able to redesign the very concept of a tubular luminaire,  faithful to our historical model while breaking new ground”. It was only after painstaking work in  order to fit in all the components that the final shape was achieved.

All the original components are still there,” says Emmanuel Gagnez, delighted. “A transparent  body, but it is rectangular rather than cylindrical. The two fixing straps traditionally used to  secure the body, but replaced by two jumpers. The internal plate supporting the driver, the  optical accessories and, lastly, the two internal end-caps which are located next to the jumpers  instead of at the two ends in the tubular luminaire. With the launch of the Quadratube, Jean Michel Wilmotte has successfully maintained Sammode’sidentity, while marketing an all-new  luminaire.” 

6 new models in all, including 4 wall luminaires and 2 pendants luminaires, with different  finishes to be found directly on the website.
