Loca­ted in the Loire Valley, the city of Angers in the west of France in the Pays de la Loire recen­tly under­went com­pre­hen­sive moder­ni­sa­tion. The focus of this refur­bish­ment was renewal of the lighting along­side the River Maine. The newly desi­gned water­front is now illu­mi­na­ted by Lif light columns and Olivio system lumi­nai­res.

The town coun­cil laun­ched the Cour de Maine” revi­ta­li­sa­tion pro­ject with the goal of tur­ning the city centre into a bustling loca­tion. In revi­ta­li­sing the city centre, the goal of the coun­cil was to enable citi­zens to redi­sco­ver the river and its water­front for them­sel­ves.

Public lighting con­ti­nues to play an impor­tant role in urban deve­lo­p­ment pro­jects for it needs to be fully inte­gra­ted into the ove­rall con­cept. For this reason the archi­tect and lighting plan­ner con­cer­ned also placed great empha­sis on the choice of lumi­nai­res for this pro­ject, both in terms of style and func­tio­na­lity.

  • Cities are lively, vibrant places that are always in motion. Changes in use within communal spaces or multi-functional concepts are transforming urban spaces and with it, the requirements for lighting. As a modular system luminaire in the shape of a slim, cylindrical light column, Lif provides full freedom for the creation of light settings in urban spaces and the smart implementation of these using networked functions. More flexible than any other luminaire, it adapts itself to the widest variety of urban lighting tasks. By day, Lif occupies a reserved role in the cityscape but it is during darkness that it demonstrates its true versatility – depending on the configuration, it can be transformed into a luminaire for squares or pathways, an accent light, or even all of these at once, while at all times remaining a minimalist light column. Lighting tools like the pathway module or the Gobo projector for eyecatching projection effects expand and enhance the scope of planning. New spacer elements in four heights perfectly complement the versatile configuration options of Lif, while smart components like a loudspeaker module, camera, or WiFi element make this light column a key element in smart cities.
  • La straordinaria famiglia di apparecchi di illuminazione Olivio è un moderno e originale sistema di illuminazione urbana multifunzionale disponibile in tre grandezze con riflettori intercambiabili per l'illuminazione stradale e d'accento. Questo flessibile sistema di illuminazione può essere equipaggiato con accessori ottici come ottiche ad anelli e a nido d'ape, lenti colorate e lenti di elongazione che offrono ulteriori effetti e possibilità di controllo. I pali e gli sbracci Olivio Sistema, Candelabra e Floracion garantiscono la massima libertà in termini di design e flessibilità di progettazione.
