Our light installation in the Old Port of Marseille is adapted to the stripped-down minimalism, combining visual comfort with elegant object design.
Our 24-meter high masts - created for the occasion - signal a large public space, located on the rift of the city of Marseille and the Mediterranean Sea, which seems to find its end or beginning there. They represent the backdrop of a vast pedestrian area, introducing the redevelopment of Marseille’s city centre.
The quantity of these lampposts has been reduced as much as possible in order to give more urban flexibility. They seem to disappear into the sky. A luminous vertical bark vibrates at the level of the passers-by.
In the bay like formation, the pontoons float on a cushion of blue light.
