PLACE DE LA REPUBLIQUE, PARIS

Our light installation at Place de la République in Paris encourages its redevelopment to the benefit of the pedestrians and it’s heritage.

 

The installation of tall needle-shaped masts around the edges of the square creates a broad central area. They diffuse a pleasant light and share a dialogue with the historical lampposts that have been re-installed and equipped with modern and dimmed light sources. The masts are also fitted with an illuminated bark that diffuses an ever-changing light, which highlights the conviviality of this central space.

 

We have always believed that a minimal level of illumination makes the nighttime more comfortable.

While the low intensity lighting allows the Place de la République to function, it also creates a virtuous atmosphere. Thereby, new uses emerge and the city is breathing.

 

At nightfall, the central monument of the square, the statue of Marianne, welcomes the tricolour movement of a luminous flag.
