Description du produit

In recent years, Lyon has carried out a wide range of interesting projects as part of its ambitious urban development. The city’s goal was, and still is, the compaction of urban areas and the maintenance of green areas. With approximately 500,000 people living in its city center, Lyon is the third largest city in France after Paris and Marseille. The metropolis on the Rhône and Saône rivers aspires to become Europe’s research and innovation center – and for years has planned new neighborhoods expeditiously. Lyon is also one of the first French cities to utilize a Plan Lumière. Some new bridges have been built as part of this new urban plan, including Pont Schuman, which connects the districts of Croix-Rousse and de Vaise. Lighting designers and architects wanted to illuminate the bridge without using masts because it would have interfered with the architecture. As a result, the only possibility was to light the bridge from the sidewall. For this challenging project, ewo custom-developed new luminaires as well as a special lens; this allowed for the light distribution to be tailored specifically for the bridge.

The lighting designer, Joseph Frey, LEA (Les Eclairagistes Associes), delivered the appropriate technical lighting concept as well. The requirement was to achieve uniform lighting to the extent possible; this was achieved on the horizontal plane. Equally challenging, however, was to illuminate deeply in the vertical plane from a low mounting position. The light mounting height is 40 cm, and the bridge is uniformly illuminated 7.60 meters towards the center. We at ewo wish Lyon much success with further development of the city.
