Loca­ted in Nor­mandy in the north-west of France, Le Havre is the country’s second lar­gest port. The goal of the Quai de Sou­t­hamp­ton pro­ject was to revi­ta­lise Le Havre’s outer port. The pro­ject is now com­plete and, in place of a partly deso­late ter­rain are now gar­dens, ter­ra­ces and playgrounds, all attrac­ting lots of visi­tors.

Ligh­ting plays an impor­tant role in this urban devel­op­ment pro­ject. When it came to illu­mi­na­tion of the Quai de Sou­t­hamp­ton, the plan­ners opted for Olivio Flora­cion on high poles. As well as ena­bling the ligh­ting of roads and foot­pa­ths, they also offer great flexi­bi­lity, for example, with regard to smart com­po­nent such as came­ras, loud­spea­kers and more, which can all be inte­gra­ted into the poles.

The mini­ma­list design and their pho­to­me­tric pro­per­ties enable the Olivio lumi­nai­res to blend per­fectly into the sur­roun­ding lands­cape.

Illu­mi­na­tion in the new port area is now pleasant and effi­cient, while at the same time free of glare and light pol­lu­tion.

  • 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.
