Trinity Square is the central plaza in the newly constructed district of City Island in central London. Located on the banks of the River Thames and nicknamed “Mini Manhattan”, it was developed by the construction company Ballymore and EcoWorld. Across an area of 12 hectares, it comprises new apartments with a warehouse look, offices, restaurants, boutiques, pedestrian footpaths and cycle paths, water parks as well as spaces for art and culture. Trinity Square is also located directly in front of the English National Ballet and recently became illuminated by Selux Olivio luminaires.
With their wooden poles, the Olivios on this reddish square with irregular, diagonal, vertical and horizontal white stripes are suggestive of additional trees – an impression enhanced by the way the Olivio Sistema is arranged about the wooden poles.
The wooden poles are 11 metres in height and illuminate the bright, semi-transparent façade of the English National Ballet and Trinity Square in 3000 Kelvin, RGBW light, enabling the square, the trees and any passers-by to be immersed in, for example, violet-coloured light by night.
The trees and the organic shape of the luminaires, together with the natural material of wood, set a contrasting accent to the modern architecture of the square and surrounding buildings. Besides the poles, which are designed by street furniture manufacturer Aubrilam, there is a matching long bench too, enticing passers-by to stop and linger for a while.
