The inau­gu­ra­tion cere­mony of the water­front on the Huangpu River could hardly have been more spec­ta­cu­lar. To coin­cide with its ope­ning on 31st Decem­ber 2018, there was snow­fall in Shan­ghai, the rare white blan­ket pro­vi­ding an extra touch of gloss to this fre­shly land­sca­ped park – much to the delight of the resi­dents in the Chi­nese metro­po­lis. Using Olivio system lumi­naires, the reser­ved ligh­ting sets visual accents, while at the same time tur­ning the water­front into an enti­cing space for adven­ture and relaxa­tion, both by day and night.

The goal was to find the best way to revi­ta­lise the eas­tern water­front along the Huangpu River. The vision for the water­front bet­ween the Yangpu Bridge in the North of Shan­ghai and the Xupu Bridge in the south, 45 km long in total, was to create a ver­sa­tile, sus­tai­nable public greens­pace that remains attrac­tive wha­te­ver the season. Impor­tant objec­tives of its usage concept were to fur­ther the health and well-being of citi­zens and enrich their lives by offe­ring oppor­tu­ni­ties for sport, games and simply sojour­ning in the fresh air.

Feel-good ambience, light qua­lity and effi­ciency are the cri­te­ria pur­sued by the ligh­ting solu­tion here, com­pri­sing Olivio system lumi­naires across a 21 km long sec­tion of the water­front known as The East Bund. With its orga­nic floral shape, the Olivio blends har­mo­niously into the sur­roun­ding envi­ron­ment, sup­ple­men­ting the land­scape plan­ning by set­ting reser­ved yet dis­tinc­tive ligh­ting accents. Paths and squares are lined with 3.5 m or 4.5 m pole-top lumi­naires from the Olivio Can­de­la­bra series equip­ped with one or two Olivio Medio LED lumi­naire heads, depen­ding on the size of the area. From squares deco­ra­ted with benches to cycle paths connec­ting the newly land­sca­ped park to the city centre, the Olivio lumi­naire system is deployed here flexi­bly in a highly diverse range of ligh­ting situa­tions along the newly desi­gned water­front. Rota­tion-sym­me­tri­cal, wide-bea­ming reflec­tors ensure soft light, pro­vi­ding an invi­ting atmos­phere for visi­tors and ensu­ring safety while jog­ging, cycling, wal­king or simply sojour­ning in the park. A colour tem­pe­ra­ture of 3000K and CRI 80 also help enli­ven the expe­rience of this urban water­front land­scape at night­time.

  • Un système d’éclairage moderne se doit d’incorporer les toutes dernières technologies de pointe, dans un respect évident d’efficacité et de conformité aux nouvelles normes environnementales. Parallèlement, l’éclairage urbain a besoin de flexibilité et de polyvalence afin de satisfaire les exigences de la vie urbaine moderne, dans laquelle les citoyens ont besoin de se réapproprier les espaces publics. Un éclairage adapté permet de donner une identité nocturne propre à la ville et de créer des atmosphères agréables. Cette réflexion a guidé le développement de toute la gamme Olivio, des luminaires de mise en valeur qui allient modularité, esthétique, fonctionnalité et intégration parfaite à l’environnement.
