Until 1999 coal was mined here but now Großrä­schen is being trans­for­med into a port town and the gate­way to the Lusa­tian Lake Dis­trict. The idea of flooding the open pit and buil­ding an urban port arose back in the days when the Meuro open-cast mine was still active.

The lake has been fil­ling up slowly since 2007 and in the mean­time a port area that is acces­si­ble via stair­ca­ses, with moor­ings for boats, a captain’s office and a jetty for pas­sen­ger ships have arisen. The future marina will be sur­roun­ded by a har­bour pro­me­nade and a lands­ca­ped tri­bune akin to an amp­hi­the­a­tre with win­ding stair­ca­ses. Against this the­a­tresque back­ground, the stair­ca­ses are illu­mi­na­ted by lumi­nai­res from the Olivio Flora­cion design line, with five Olivio Grande LED lumi­naire heads win­ding ele­gantly up nine-metre high poles in a spiral. The result is func­ti­o­nal but at the same time atmos­p­heric illu­mi­na­tion of the tri­bune.

The floral design lan­gu­age of the lumi­nai­res blends in har­mo­niously with the adja­cent viney­ard slopes that have been built into the lake­side and form the only steep pre­ci­pice in Bran­den­burg. The lumi­naire heads are equip­ped with a DALI inter­face, which can be con­trol­led cen­trally using EUTRAC com­po­nents and ena­bles the lands­ca­ped tri­bune and selec­ted objects in the port area to be illu­mi­na­ted in a punc­ti­form fas­hion both flexi­bly and uni­formly. Fol­lo­wing a flooding phase of more than 10 years, fil­ling of Lake Großrä­schen is set to be com­ple­ted by early 2018 at the latest, cre­a­ting an impor­tant tou­rist attrac­tion for the Lusa­tian Lake Dis­trict region.

  • 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.
  • Exelia is the classic solution when it comes to installing lighting equipment in close proximity to buildings. The luminaire fulfils a wide range of tasks for streetscape design, ambience creation and orientation in urban centres. The light column can serve both as a city streetlight and as a waymarker. A particular feature of the Exelia is its high grade of impact resistance with long-lasting mechanical characteristics.
