Kore­ans love shop­ping and they love extrav­a­gance too. With its giant shop­ping malls, Seoul resem­bles a sin­gu­lar par­adise for shop­ping fans. In Hanam, just out­side the nation’s cap­i­tal, the Starfield Lifestyle Shop­ping Centre – one of the largest shop­ping and enter­tain­ment cen­tres in the coun­try – recently opened its doors. Olivio LED system lumi­naires by Selux light up the entrance square and paths in the evening hours lend­ing them an indi­vid­ual touch. Besides per­fect light­ing during dark­ness, addi­tional com­po­nents like inte­grated loud­speak­ers and adver­tis­ing ban­ners ensure the mall a com­mu­nica­tive, urban space that uses one con­sis­tent design lan­guage. As well as the mod­u­lar Olivio exte­rior lumi­naires, Notch LED bol­lard lumi­naires guide vis­i­tors along the safest route in the grounds of the park or along foot­paths.

The idyl­lic town of Hanam, famed for its green­space and unique moun­tain back­drop, is pri­mar­ily a magnet for tourists on account of its prox­im­ity to the cap­i­tal. The shop­ping centre houses more than 800 brand names and opened in summer 2017, offer­ing a wide range of shop­ping and enter­tain­ment options. Embed­ded in the sur­round­ing hilly land­scape, with its organic design, the Olivio Sis­tema line adds a highly effec­tive touch. Around the lumi­naire pole, Olivio Grande lumi­naire heads have been installed in clus­ters of 6 or 8 with beams offset on var­i­ous levels – a spe­cial fea­ture of the Olivio system, which allows flex­i­ble con­fig­u­ra­tion depend­ing on the light­ing task.

Beyond the func­tion of mere light­ing, useful fea­tures such as loud­speak­ers and adver­tis­ing boards have been attached to the lumi­naire poles. Vis­i­tors are wel­comed by calm­ing sounds when they approach the main entrance, which emanate from the loud­speak­ers con­cealed in the lower lumi­naire heads – a sen­si­ble solu­tion for the com­bined design of light and sound using a uni­form design lan­guage.

The chosen light colour of 3000 K bathes the fore­court in a pleas­ant light while Notch LED bol­lards illu­mi­nate the paths along the park land­scape that sur­rounds the mall using glare­less light. In the evening and night hours, they pro­vide accent light­ing for plants and shrubs while by day their dis­creet, reserved shape makes for a highly impres­sive sight. The light­ing con­cept for this public space pro­vides a highly impres­sive light mood enabling vis­i­tors to the shop­ping centre to feel safe and at ease.

  • 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.
