    Description

    The entire Place has been taken into consideration: from the lighting of the Statue of the République to the customization of the historical candelabras.

    The functional lighting is ensured by tall needle columns of 16,5 meters (especially conceived for this project), equipped with a ‘signal’ bark. These ‘signal’ barks diffuse an abstract light substance which gives the Place the only dynamic and daily light elements.
