The goal of Agen Munic­i­pal Coun­cil was to create a pedes­tri­an­ized area in the heart of the town, which was to give pri­or­ity to pedes­tri­ans on the boule­vard and on adja­cent roads too. Plan­ning of the loca­tion catered for a meet­ing place, public ameni­ties like benches, trees and lights and an open space for walk­ers. Use of water on the boule­vard was also a require­ment. The light con­cept stems from Lionel Bessieres from the Quartiers Lumières” agency, with Selux Olivio Grande lumi­naires deployed on 5 m high Flo­racion poles.

A par­tic­u­lar aspect of the poles is that they are equipped with neb­u­liz­ers at a height of 1.20 m with sound con­soles on the pole-tops. During very hot sum­mers, the neb­u­liz­ers spray water around the poles to refresh the pedes­tri­ans below. Lumera 300 lumi­naires are used to light the con­struc­tion, which have been painted the same colour as the wall to blend better into the over­all set­ting. The new light­ing has also reduced elec­tric­ity con­sump­tion by 60 per­cent while annual run­ning costs for public light­ing are four times less than with the old tech­nol­ogy. Two light­ing vari­ants are pos­si­ble, both nigh­t­ime light­ing and strictly lim­ited illu­mi­na­tion using pre­vi­ously set para­me­ters.

  • The distinctive Olivio family is a modern, striking, multifunctional urban lighting system, available in three different sizes with interchangeable reflectors for street and accent lighting applications. This flexible lighting system can be equipped with optical accessories such as honeycomb and ring louvres, coloured and elongation lenses offering further effects and control. Olivio Sistema, Candelabra and Floracion poles and brackets provide total freedom of design and flexible planning.
