La Bocca

Cannes, France

How can an urban dis­trict be revi­tal­ized by upgrad­ing its exte­rior light­ing? This was the ques­tion Cannes City Coun­cil asked them­selves with the goal of making the dis­trict of La Bocca in the heart of the city attrac­tive for vis­i­tors and locals again. Now the light of the Olivio lumi­naires too in this newly illu­mi­nated dis­trict not only pro­vide secu­rity and well-being but attrac­tive­ness too.

For uni­form illu­mi­na­tion of the var­i­ous public areas in the dis­trict such as squares, boule­vards, alleys or shop­ping streets, the city of Cannes opted for Flo­racion poles of dif­fer­ent heights, fitted with Olivio lumi­naires. This has resulted in effi­cient and impres­sive light­ing that is ideal for all the dif­fer­ent light­ing tasks. The multi-func­tion­al­ity of the Olivio lumi­naire family has meant cam­eras for video sur­veil­lance, loud­speak­ers, brack­ets for adver­tis­ing ban­ners or even gobo pro­jec­tors can be inte­grated into the poles.

Olivio system poles of dif­fer­ent heights have been erected in dis­trict of La Bocca. The plan­ners exploited the ver­sa­til­ity of this lumi­naire family with regards to the posi­tions of the lumi­naire heads and colour com­bi­na­tions for lumi­naire, pole and inlay, with lumi­naire heads arranged indi­vid­u­ally around the pole – in accor­dance with the light­ing con­cept. As a result, unique lumi­naire con­fig­u­ra­tions have been cre­ated that ensure attrac­tive accents are set by night in this urban envi­ron­ment. By day too, the Olivio lumi­naires har­mo­niously blend into their sur­round­ings in this urban space like reserved sculp­tures.
