LED PROJECT / CHAMPS-ELYSEES, PARIS, FRANCE


ers of the Comité des Champs-Elysées who had whittled the 27 submissions down to a shortlist of five. A few weeks later they were called back as one of the final three to be considered. This second meeting really tackled the financial and logistical aspects of the contract. The initial brief had given the option to submit either a design concept on its own, or a full designer- provider package. ACT had opted for the former, but it was clear to the Comité that their existing contractors would struggle to realise ACT’s innovative design. To make the bid successful, ACT would need to become a complete solution provider – essentially a rental agent who would lease the lighting system to the city for an annual fee over the three years of the contract. With little experience of the event rental business – or indeed any desire to move into that area - ACT instead partnered with ASP Blue Square, a company active in the technical production of events, with who ACT had dealt many times in the past. Their experi- ence proved invaluable in the subsequent rounds of presentations, which included one session with 60 officials from the Paris council including those responsible for tree health, street furniture, lighting, accessibil- ity, graffiti and even ‘dog waste’ removal. Each had to be satisfied that the new light scheme would not cause any issues for the smooth running of the city. As part of their earlier presentations, ACT had created a one-third mock up of the ring-luminaires, but before final sign-off was given a full-scale version was con- structed and demonstrated to an assembled crowd of officials and Comité members. Seeing the theory turned into reality silenced any remaining doubts and helped galvanise enthusiastic support across the board. With seven months remaining, manu- facturing partners BIS Lighting were set to work creating all the required pieces. The same structure is used for all of the selected trees, but during installation, the orientation of each was carefully consid-

ered, rotating the piece around the tree until the optimum effect was achieved. “That’s perhaps the beauty of the concept,” explains Vermeulen. “The trees on the Champs-Elysées are all of a certain style - they are all carefully trimmed - but no two trees are the same; they’re different sizes and ages, and the branches all start at dif- ferent levels. So every time you illuminate it with the ring structure, you create a new sculpture.”


In practice, the piece is constructed in stages. The largest, top ring is the only one that is attached to all three rods, so this is the first to be placed, positioned to create the best illumination effect while carefully weaving around the branches. When this is done, the lower two rings are inserted. Each ring, including the concrete base, is constructed in two semi-circular sections for ease of assembly.


“This flexibility of the ring system started as a practical necessity to cope with the irregular shape of the trees, but it became a design parameter and one of the things that I think won this competition,” says Vermeulen. ACT was keen to avoid a system that only

The three rings range in size from 3 metres to 3.8 metres in diameter. Rather than being attached to the tree, the rings are held in place by three metal poles that curve outwards from a concrete-donut base. Each ring is slightly offset from the last – the lower two are fixed to just two of the support poles with only the largest top ring supported by all three. Photographs: Didier Boy La Tour

Cette année, en rupture avec la tradition, le Comité champs-Elysées, le consortium regroupant les pro- priétaires de la plus célèbre avenue de Paris, ont dé- cidé d’adopter un modèle d’illuminations de Noël stylé,


moderne, sous la houlette de Koert Vermeulen et de Marcos Viñals d’ACT Lighting Design. 200 des 588 arbres de l’avenue ont été encerclés de trois anneaux illuminés. Le diamètre de ces derniers va de 2,4 à 6 mètres. Plutôt que d’être attachés aux arbres, ils sont maintenus en place par trois poteaux métalliques courbés vers l’extérieur et reliés à une base en béton. Chaque anneau est légèrement décalé par rapport à l’autre - les deux anneaux inférieurs ne sont fixés qu’à deux des poteaux de support, seul le plus important étant supporté par les trois poteaux. des LED RGB descendent à l’intérieur comme à l’extérieur des anneaux et sont contrôlées de manière individuelle via DMX de manière à assurer le plus grand nombre de combinaisons d’éclairages possible. Les anneaux lumineux, créés spécialement pour l’occasion, ont été produits par BIS Lighting en Bel- gique et installés par ASP Blue Square, qui s’est as- socié avec ACT pour ce projet.
