Each day, some 25,000 tra­vel­lers and 500 trains pass through Ant­werp Cen­tral Sta­tion, one of the finest rail­way sta­ti­ons in the world. It is known to locals as the Rail­way Cathe­dral”, mainly on account of its impo­sing dome. Opened in 1905, the sta­tion has been exten­si­vely rede­s­ig­ned over the past few years so that the sta­tion now ope­ra­tes on three levels, inclu­ding an under­ground sec­tion.

As part of the reno­va­tion mea­su­res, its stone sta­tion buil­ding has been fitted with an ela­bo­rate ligh­ting system. In kee­ping with the building’s eclec­tic style, the impo­sing sta­tion buil­ding is now ador­ned with Olivio accent ligh­ting. With their 14-metre high poles and mini­ma­list shape, the lights ensure a mas­ter­ful look by day yet wit­hout domi­na­ting the sur­roun­dings.

  • The distinctive Olivio family is a modern, striking, multifunctional urban lighting system, available in three different sizes with interchangeable reflectors for street and accent lighting applications. This flexible lighting system can be equipped with optical accessories such as honeycomb and ring louvres, coloured and elongation lenses offering further effects and control. Olivio Sistema, Candelabra and Floracion poles and brackets provide total freedom of design and flexible planning.
