Fol­low­ing twelve years of revi­tal­i­sa­tion in the areas around the Le Bassin du Com­merce’ har­bour, Cherbourg‘s inhab­i­tants can now take advan­tage of a 400 m² green space where they can take a stroll or engage in var­i­ous other leisure activ­i­ties. Across an area of more than 11,500 m², 7,000 new plants have been planted – palm trees, white mag­no­lia, bam­boos and shrubs, cycle paths incor­po­rated and a 1,000 m² out­door skater park con­structed.

The light con­cept and lumi­naires were designed by the French light designer Yann Ker­salé, who has pre­vi­ously installed Selux lumi­naires in Marseille’s old port. More than 100 exte­rior lumi­naires called Lu-Mignon and sev­eral Olivio lumi­naires ensure a pleas­ant mood in the park both by day and by night.

The unob­tru­sive ver­ti­cal light and their vari­able design make the Lu-Mignons a real eye catcher. From the inside the IP68 cer­ti­fied exte­rior hous­ings have been foil-coated with var­i­ous floral motifs (bamboo shoots, flow­ers and leaves). All this has given rise to a green oasis in the middle of this indus­trial har­bour land­scape, which acts as an attrac­tive meet­ing point for the cit­i­zens of Cher­bourg.
