Sur­roun­ded by impres­sive white cliffs, Dieppe is the oldest sea­side resort in France. The lively port town on the English chan­nel is loca­ted in the Nor­mandy region. At a dis­tance of around 200 km Dieppe is the nea­rest beach to Paris.

Henri IV dock is a place in Dieppe that is highly fre­quen­ted by both locals and tou­rists. Many events take place at the dock during the year, mea­ning a lot of people pass through it, which is why moder­ni­za­tion of its street ligh­ting forms part of an upgrade pro­cess that takes aes­the­tics, eco­nomy and sustai­na­bi­lity into account. To ensure the safety of users and com­fort during the eve­ning, ligh­ting that can be adap­ted for each pur­pose has been rede­vel­o­ped on the dock: warm and soft for pede­stri­ans, and more func­ti­o­nal for road­ways.

In order to pre­serve the har­mony and beauty of the town, Som­breo lumi­nai­res have been chosen. Inspi­red by the aes­the­tics of lan­terns han­ging from a mast, as on a ship’s deck, Som­breo acts as a dis­tinc­tive eye-cat­cher in Dieppe.

Thanks to LED tech­no­logy, the ligh­ting is fully con­trol­la­ble in order to reduce energy con­sump­tion and main­tenance cost, in par­ti­cu­lar by set­ting up a dim­ming system accor­ding to the hours and peri­ods of the year.

  • The Sombreo family is especially suited to creating an urban atmosphere. Inspired by the style of living room lamp shades, the luminaires in this family are available in two sizes – Sombreo 230 and 300. The Sombreo is available as a single or twin configuration with cast aluminium arms, wall-mounted and as a catenary luminaire. Optimised light technology makes for maximum visual comfort and enables ultra-efficient lighting schemes that conform to international standards for a wide range of environments.
