Tri­nity Square is the cen­tral plaza in the newly con­struc­ted district of City Island in cen­tral London. Loca­ted on the banks of the River Thames and nic­k­na­med Mini Man­hat­tan”, it was deve­lo­ped by the con­struc­tion com­pany Bal­ly­more and Eco­World. Across an area of 12 hec­ta­res, it com­pri­ses new apart­ments with a ware­house look, offi­ces, restau­rants, bou­ti­ques, pede­strian foot­pa­ths and cycle paths, water parks as well as spaces for art and cul­ture. Tri­nity Square is also loca­ted direc­tly in front of the English Natio­nal Ballet and recen­tly became illu­mi­na­ted by Selux Olivio lumi­nai­res.

With their wooden poles, the Oli­vios on this red­dish square with irre­gu­lar, dia­go­nal, ver­ti­cal and hori­zon­tal white stri­pes are sug­ge­stive of addi­tio­nal trees – an impres­sion enhan­ced by the way the Olivio Sistema is arran­ged about the wooden poles.

The wooden poles are 11 metres in height and illu­mi­nate the bright, semi-trans­pa­rent façade of the English Natio­nal Ballet and Tri­nity Square in 3000 Kelvin, RGBW light, ena­bling the square, the trees and any pas­sers-by to be immer­sed in, for exam­ple, violet-colou­red light by night.

The trees and the orga­nic shape of the lumi­nai­res, toge­ther with the natu­ral mate­rial of wood, set a con­tra­sting accent to the modern archi­tec­ture of the square and sur­roun­ding buil­dings. Besi­des the poles, which are desi­gned by street fur­ni­ture manu­fac­tu­rer Aubri­lam, there is a mat­ching long bench too, enti­cing pas­sers-by to stop and linger for a while.
