Here the goal was to bring the cen­tral square in the town of Del­brück to life using light. A new light mood the­re­fore needed to be concei­ved using lumi­naires that would also not com­pete too hea­vily with the archi­tec­ture of the sur­roun­ding buil­dings. The resul­tant light concept was devi­sed by Studio Can­dela in coope­ra­tion with FSWLA and took into account the unique nature of the archi­tec­ture at Kirch­platz in Del­brück. The plan­ners chose the uni­ver­sal Lif light column by Selux, the mini­ma­list shape of which blends har­mo­niously into the sur­roun­dings.

Kirch­platz in Del­brück or Church Square is loca­ted at the heart of this small town in North Rhine-West­pha­lia with a popu­la­tion of 30,000 inha­bi­tants. Around the Catho­lic parish church of St. John the Bap­tist, the croo­ked wooden spire of which is regar­ded as the town’s land­mark, stands a unique col­lec­tion of half-tim­be­red houses. The pre­vious ligh­ting at this church square, which was merely func­tio­nal, has now been repla­ced with a modern ligh­ting concept, for which the Lif has assu­med the star­ring role.

A slim, cylin­dri­cal light column with a dia­me­ter of just 180 mil­li­metres, Lif blends per­fectly into the towns­cape as a space-defi­ning ele­ment, its ele­gant purist design accen­tua­ting the area around the parish church with pre­mium qua­lity light. Being a modu­lar system, a variety of gear trays can be ins­tal­led on the Lif, which is the reason plan­ners chose it for the task of both envi­ron­men­tal and path­way ligh­ting. The Lif top ele­ment illu­mi­nates Kirch­platz and the path­ways that lead off from it with its down­wardly direc­ted light while the twins­pot modules cast their light upwards as far as the tops of the trees that line the square. As well as illu­mi­na­ting the trees howe­ver, this hori­zon­tally beamed light also bathes all the façades around the square in a reser­ved, roman­tic light.

Lif suc­cess­fully sets the impres­sive sur­roun­dings of the parish church in Del­brück in scene by tar­ge­ted use of light, live­ning up this town centre while pro­vi­ding it with a high degree of sojourn qua­lity – par­ti­cu­larly during the eve­ning hours.

  • Qu’il s’agisse d’admirer des bâtiments aux façades splendides, de rêver devant des monuments historiques, de déambuler au travers de rues commerçantes ou de parcs, l’enthousiasme que nous vouons à nos centres-villes et à la diversité de leurs espaces publics est sans limite. Cet engouement est rendu plus fort la nuit, lorsque la lumière révèle la véritable magie de nos coeurs de villes. De forme minimaliste, Lif s’intègre très discrètement à tout projet d'aménagement urbain. De jour, Lif préfèrera se fondre dans le décor, en arrière-plan. De nuit, Lif donnera sa pleine mesure en s’adaptant avec souplesse aux contraintes de l’environnement urbain. Sa modularité lui permettra de créer des effets visuels comme aucun autre luminaire n’a pu le faire jusqu’alors, et sa polyvalence l’amènera à faire redécouvrir l’ambiance de leur ville aux habitants. Lif contribuera alors à fournir l’expression la plus complète de la vie urbaine.
