In an area once domi­na­ted by heavy traf­fic and where there was scar­cely suf­fi­cient air to bre­a­the, today stand 700 new­ly­plan­ted Bel­gian cherry trees. The Ave­nida de Por­tu­gal”, for­merly an eight-lane high­way and one of the main arte­rial roads in Madrid, has under­gone cos­me­tic sur­gery” — parts of the road have dis­ap­pe­a­red into tun­nels and parks and gar­dens have arisen in their place.

An impres­sive ligh­ting con­cept, achie­ved with the help of Selux lumi­nai­res, has also been instal­led along the newly-built bou­le­vard. The new lumi­naire in ques­tion is called the Olivio” and, in shape and design, recalls the sur­roun­ding cherry trees.

  • The organic design of Olivio and its functional versatility due to the modular design of this luminaire family is inspired by role models from nature. As a result Olivio forms the basis for light concepts in urban living areas where the focus is on the well-being of people. Olivio luminaire heads are available in the sizes Grande, Medio and Piccolo and can be combined with various arms and pole types from the three design lines Sistema, Floracion and Candelabra. Yet it is not just the design that can be adapted individually according to the situation – various optics and light colours from 2,700 to 4,000 Kelvin also cater for challenging lighting tasks efficiently and without glare: from illumination of paths and squares, floodlighting of façades and accent lighting of buildings. The new Olivio Cap also reduces light scatter and for special requirements, with its camera and loudspeaker modules, Olivio can be integrated into smart application scene. The special wooden-pole aesthetic emphasizes the Olivio's high quality, organic luminaire design. Combined with luminaire heads in a harmonoius colour tone such as bronze, this results in a timelessly comforting spatial ambience.
