TECHNOLOGY / CASE STUDIES LOW POWER SHOWERS A world leader in urban lighting, Lyon recently upgraded four of its fountains with LEDs from LEC.


Seeking high quality lighting that meets its stringent policy on energy saving, the city of Lyon turned to LED lights to renewing four of its fountains: République, Célestins, Maréchal Lyautey and Louis Pradel. LED specialist LEC worked collaboratively to develop a range of submersible luminaires designed to fulfill the creative brief whilst also coping with the difficult environmental conditions associated with public fountains – namely water, lime scale, and vandalism. The improved performance of the LED sources, combined with LEC’s product innovation, offers both a powerful economic rationale and low total cost of ownership for submersible lighting.


Frédéric Durand, manager of public lighting in the city of Lyon, oversaw the project. “Renovation is always a difficult task, especially when a sealing requirement is involved. This required additional work in adaptation, covering and connection,” he says. “We have tested many solutions to


compare several technologies and technical options. We chose LED for its compact size, which makes it easy to hide. The lifetime of the luminaire was also crucial as maintenance is particularly difficult in fountains.”


He continues: “LEC was selected for technical criteria and price. It was


significant that the company was able to adapt to the specific needs of each fountain and performed a completely bespoke piece of customised work to fit each location. They were responsive to unexpected problems and were able to provide the perfect solution.” www.lec.fr


THE HEART OF FASHION Megaman lights up a new designer fashion complex in the heart of Hong Kong’s Central District.


CENTRAL/CENTRAL, a retail concept developed by GRI, Asia’s leading international apparel and accessories brand-management and retail-distribution company, brings together the company’s portfolio of brands under one roof for the first time. Names in the 18,000 square feet retail space at the heart of Hong Kong’s financial and commercial district include Anne Klein New York, Carolinna Espinosa, Easy Spirit, EQ:IQ, Joan & David, Karen Millen, Nine West and Steve Madden. Thanks to the use of Megaman LED reflector technology, the end result is one of both visual lighting drama and energy savings, with 105,090 kWh saved in energy consumption and 73,563 kg in CO2 emissions per year. To create this stylish mall, GRI commissioned Steve Leung Designers Ltd to design a flowing space that accommodated each brand’s outlet with fluidity, but also allowing for individual expression. Working alongside renowned lighting designer, Tino Kwan, founder of Tino Kwan Lighting Consultants, the result is a stunning white


shopping canvas within which each ‘art collection’, or brand, is presented. Kwan explains: “CENTRAL/CENTRAL is a holistic shopping experience, and with this in mind, it has been divided into nine areas, eight shops and one private relaxation area, each with its own style and character of light fitting. Each of the shops reflects the individual personality of the international designer represented within it and has been designed with the two-fold aim of showing off the beauty of the products within, as


well as positively impacting sales.” While the design of each of the stores aims to offer the maximum flexibility for merchandising, the lighting technology used throughout has been chosen with visual impact, customer comfort and energy efficiency in mind. Kwan chose to use Megaman LED Reflector Technology due to the lighting performance of the lamps and the variety of directional beam angles available. www.megamanlighting.com
