The Tom Hanafan River´s Edge Park in Coun­cil Bluffs, Iowa, is com­mit­ted to the prin­ci­ple of ren­der­ing the Mis­souri river bank as green space. A large sec­tion of the park con­serves the river’s woods and wet­lands in their nat­ural com­po­si­tion. The park has also been designed as a meet­ing place for res­i­dents and vis­i­tors on the banks on the Mis­souri River.

The flex­i­ble Selux Olivio Sis­tema system pro­vides ideal light­ing for the park’s multi-faceted uses. On the spa­cious grassed areas, Olivio lumi­naires with their uni­form, con­trolled bright­ness allow the con­stantly chang­ing light pat­terns of the inter­ac­tive light instal­la­tion rays to remain undis­turbed.

  • The organic design of Olivio and its functional versatility due to the modular design of this luminaire family is inspired by role models from nature. As a result Olivio forms the basis for light concepts in urban living areas where the focus is on the well-being of people. Olivio luminaire heads are available in the sizes Grande, Medio and Piccolo and can be combined with various arms and pole types from the three design lines Sistema, Floracion and Candelabra. Yet it is not just the design that can be adapted individually according to the situation – various optics and light colours from 2,700 to 4,000 Kelvin also cater for challenging lighting tasks efficiently and without glare: from illumination of paths and squares, floodlighting of façades and accent lighting of buildings. The new Olivio Cap also reduces light scatter and for special requirements, with its camera and loudspeaker modules, Olivio can be integrated into smart application scene. The special wooden-pole aesthetic emphasizes the Olivio's high quality, organic luminaire design. Combined with luminaire heads in a harmonoius colour tone such as bronze, this results in a timelessly comforting spatial ambience.
