Henri IV quay

Dieppe, France

Sur­rounded by impres­sive white cliffs, Dieppe is the oldest sea­side resort in France. The lively port town on the Eng­lish chan­nel is located in the Nor­mandy region. At a dis­tance of around 200 km Dieppe is the near­est beach to Paris.

Henri IV dock is a place in Dieppe that is highly fre­quented by both locals and tourists. Many events take place at the dock during the year, mean­ing a lot of people pass through it, which is why mod­ern­iza­tion of its street light­ing forms part of an upgrade process that takes aes­thet­ics, econ­omy and sus­tain­abil­ity into account. To ensure the safety of users and com­fort during the evening, light­ing that can be adapted for each pur­pose has been rede­vel­oped on the dock: warm and soft for pedes­tri­ans, and more func­tional for road­ways.

In order to pre­serve the har­mony and beauty of the town, Som­breo lumi­naires have been chosen. Inspired by the aes­thet­ics of lanterns hang­ing from a mast, as on a ship’s deck, Som­breo acts as a dis­tinc­tive eye-catcher in Dieppe.

Thanks to LED tech­nol­ogy, the light­ing is fully con­trol­lable in order to reduce energy con­sump­tion and main­te­nance cost, in par­tic­u­lar by set­ting up a dim­ming system accord­ing to the hours and peri­ods of the year.
