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.
