Jörg Boner productdesign has developed a new product family of street lamps in collaboration with the Danish lamp producer Louis Poulsen. In tandem with the construction of an additional office building at its headquarters in Baden, the Swiss energy company AXPO wanted to install new lighting across the whole site. Factors such as energy efficiency and contemporary design were important aspects of the brief given to Jörg Boner’s studio. It was equally important to the client that the lamps wouldn’t be a source of light pollution at night.
The aim of the product family was to establish a formal connection between wall washer lighting and pole lights. The lamps have a very sculptural character, resulting from the fusion of mast and head.
The street lamps and pathfinder lights appear in varying heights of 5m, 4.3m, and 3.8m; the wall washer is 1m in height. HQI illuminants are placed inside an aluminium lamp head, together with a high-quality reflector. Individual lamps are equipped with an LED flag closer to ground level. When the lamps are switched off later at night, they function as markers and signals. The application areas vary with the height of the mast, the strength of the chosen illuminant, and the light temperature.
Louis Poulsen plans to go into serial production of the lamps for the Swiss market.
