PARK LIGHTING – BRAZIL
“LEDiL is our main optics partner because of their huge variety of products and great local support.”
Fernanda Tissot – Luxion
An old railway station dating back to 1910 – in the city of Caxias do Sul in Southern Brazil – was given new life when this long forgotten and overgrown part of the city was regenerated into a public park. The old network of intersecting railway lines in their original urban environment was the perfect lighting project for LUXION, a company that always tries to find people friendly solutions when improving environmental surroundings. The most important criteria for the project – apart from the technical requirements – was to have uniform lighting that would give a cozy and warm atmosphere to the area.
In order to meet the lighting requirements for public areas and local standards, LUXION developed a high quality, cost-effective solution in collaboration with METALCO and LEDiL. The poles were designed to distribute light evenly throughout the park using LEDiL optics. The main reason for choosing FLORENCE-Z90 was the ability to match the lens design with the pole, low glare and effective photometry. The modern design of the poles, resembling actual rails, were a perfect match for the urban surroundings.
A space that had been previously unused for years was brought back to life as a new park with modern lighting while maintaining part of the city history. The final outcome could not have been better or more suited to this urban landscape. Thanks to high quality lighting this regenerated park is now a lively and thriving public space day and night.
