New public lighting led to Bellinzona, the new technologies allow you to create variable lighting scenarios and customizable according to the time of year or the events that take place in the city.
Stefano Dall'Osso and his work team present the lighting design created for the lower part of Avenue Station in Bellinzona. The urban embellishment project, carried out by the Dicastery Public Works of the City of Bellinzona, will allow citizens to "live" Viale Stazione even during the evening hours, prolonging the pleasure of attending the space after sunset.
The night will become a splendid and unparalleled opportunity to perceive the context in a different way: the new light will show images, glimpses, unexpected views during the day. In addition, the new design of light will be a strong element of aesthetic enhancement of the place and will have the ability to excite the users, thanks to its multiple lighting scenarios.
The new lighting format wanted to highlight those that are the main focus of the area, namely the 215 street meters, the 20 benches, the sidewalk in the area of the benches and the trees, 26 specimens of lime tree. For the benches was chosen a linear fixture in LED technology: its position under the seat creates an original effect of "floating".
In correspondence with the trees and along the sidewalk, on the other hand, a linear and modular luminaire has been chosen, also in LED technology, recessed to the floor, perfect for creating a real "light carpet".
The new plant will be managed and controlled by a system (LM & CS) that will allow to create different lighting scenes giving rise to "multiples" of space; moreover, it will be possible to customize the luminous directions according to the calendar of events (weekdays, holidays, Ramadan, Christmas, etc.). The system, which can be managed by electronic devices equipped with cutting-edge technologies, allows - with a simple gesture - to recall previously memorized lighting scenarios, to regulate the intensity of the emitted light flux, to change the lighting scenarios or to create new; the lighting system can be managed by any latest generation device (tablet, desktop PC or notebook, smartphone, etc.) either on site or remotely.
The new lighting of the avenue will provide a safe added value to the entire city of Bellinzona and will stimulate its attendance, encouraging the development of social and commercial activities.
