Projecting Beaune’s Architectural Ancestry


iGuzzini creates spectacular public lighting system, bringing the heart of the town to life


For over fifty years, iGuzzini has publicised its idea of “Better Light for a Better Life”, whilst providing luminaires for architecture, towns and cities. This idea has been the founding principle of the company and has become one of its distinctive characteristics. iGuzzini offers essentially two types of urban lighting solutions; High-potential, advanced technology ‘standard’ devices, and so-called ’special’ products, specifically designed to meet the requirements of an individual project. These are exactly the two types of solution at the heart of Beaune, a project that seeks to recreate an entire town, enhancing its historical and cultural heritage by means of the ingenious use of light.


Beaune in France, the one-time capital of the Dukes of Burgundy, is now equipt with a public lighting system enhancing the rich

historical and artistic heritage of the town. This is achieved via a spectacular course of luminiaries and facade video-projections, accompanying the visitor on an exciting exploration of the town’s history. Designed by lighting designer Jean Francois Touchard and Cosmo’s multi-video creator Jose Cristiani, the venture uses iGuzzini luminaire systems. The substantial renovation project uses standard iGuzzini LED devices which they believe are the most advanced lighting technology in existence. The lighting system is intelligent, adaptable and of a very high quality as it is specifically designed to be eco-sustainable. In Beaune it reduces energy consumption by an incredible 47%.


As night falls, a series of white or coloured luminaires create a stunning walk-and- discover experience through the town’s main sights. Captivating 3D projections


animate the facades of the buildings. These enchanting projections are inspired by the town’s history, expressing their past and the essence of their existence. Each projector is independent and controlled by the iGuzzini Master Pro management system. It has its own colour, its own particular shade and its own timer. The light it gives off changes colour according to the scenario, thereby obtaining a dynamic course of coloured beams of light. The wave of light that this creates reaches right into the heart of the town as well as along the ramparts, which are further enhanced by other Platea projectors.
