Lyon Lyon Part-Dieu − an ewo urban lounge project

This project video shows how light can impact our nightlife by turning public spaces into our urban lounge.

Place de Francfort is a substantial hub: a connection between the station, the T3 and T4 trams, and the Rhônexpress. It also serves as a bus station, short-stay car park, waiting area and pedestrian crossing.

Bespoke, multifunctional luminaires create a welcoming environment for travellers and local residents while also serving as urban furniture.

Effect lighting accompanies downward-shining street and public area illuminations, with projectors offering directional illumination based on their location.

Special casings show illuminations changing their appearance depending on viewing angle and perspective, incorporating circular serigraphic outlets for the light. Layers of micro prismatic glass, with lensless strip LED effects running underneath these features, delivering an intriguing, evolving appearance.

Lighting set the tone and atmosphere for public comfort during different periods of the night - from twilight to the deepest night. ewo’s proud ability to combine multiple distributions within each luminaire, was a huge asset here allowing total freedom of illumination design. The project perfectly demonstrates how we can active public spaces with the help of light.

ewoIndividual Project Manager Philippe Paupart, lighting designer Vincent Thiesson and ewo France Directing Manager Florent Pigot will guide you through this transformative project at Place de Francfort, in Lyon Part-Dieu.
