Configurate. Your Lighting Your Way.

Configurate Modular Ceiling Canopy

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Monday, May 17, 2021 — Vancouver, BC.    Configurate is the powerhouse behind Archilume’s ingenuity.

Configurate is a modular ceiling canopy system that allows Archilume’s pendants to be hung in a myriad of customizable patterns. Configurate uses the ceiling plane as a decorative element to create a completely unique lighting installation for each individual space. The idea was inspired by the plaster rosettes available in Victorian times where the ceiling element introduced a light fixture or chandelier hanging from the centre point of a radial pattern. Over time this element has been reduced to a simple plain ceiling. Configurate brings back an element of function that harkens back to the Victorian rosette with a modern twist.

“We thought, why not have the element of function, with a surface mounted canopy, and blend it with a creative pattern to harken back to that Victorian idea.” - Saleem Khattak

Configurate is flexible for your space and design aspirations. The clean, simple geometric shapes have staying power. An instant classic in lighting canopy design.

Archilume products are generally smaller in scale ideal for singular elements or groups of as many units as required to create impactful installations in large areas.
