Gambettola is an Italian ‘comune’ in the province of Forlì-Cesena (Emilia-Romagna), located a few kilometers away from Longiano, where Neri’s headquarters are.
SYRMA AND LILIUM
Neri helped the architects of ‘Studio 2P Architettura’ from Lucca (Tuscany) to realise their custom project for Gambettola. Syrma system has been chosen to light Gambettola while Lilium series to furnish it, with some elements from Carya and Idesia. To achieve the lighting performance the architects were after, Syrma post has been matched with the lighting fixture Electra.
The project required a post 50 cm higher and a special bracket to hold the lighting fixture. The solution designed for Gambettola not only responds to the lighting requirements, but works well with the surroundings. The architecture is quite recent, mainly constituted by two-storey buildings from the last century.
The lighting fixture Electra has been designed by Alfredo Farnè. It is characterised by a dynamic and sleek profile; it features a LED source integrated into the luminaire designed by Neri. Light Electra ranked among the top three winning products at the design competition in Brazil in 2013 and was selected to take part to the New York (US) international design competition.
The streets of Gambettola, like many towns, often host sport events, carnival parades, arts and crafts and antiques markets. During those days there is the need to give warnings and notices to the participants through speakers. With the installation of new street lights, the old loudspeakers have been eliminated and the new ones integrated within the lamp-posts.
Street furniture plays an important role in the project. Elements of the Lilium series have been chosen because perfectly coordinated with the lighting (posts, luminaires and bollards). Among the elements part of the series there are also bollards and hurdles mainly used to delimitate spaces.
Lilium bollards feature two different lighting sources. Some of them have a strip of 60 LED modules behind a frosted screen on the side, others mount a 18W fluorescent lamp at the top equipped with a reflector behind a transparent screen.
LILIUM BUS SHELTER
On the main street some Lilium bus shelters have been also installed.
LILIUM SIGN BOARD
Lilium double sign boards have been installed in the square to hold informative panels about the recent discovery of interesting archeological ruins, found during the recent escavation works.
SCILLA TRASH BIN
To complete the Lilium series, Scilla silver bin has been chosen. The bigger version of the bin can hold inside the electrical connections required by the street market that weekly animates the square.
A silver version of Carya bench is also part of the project.
IDESIA CYCLE RACK
Idesia cycle rack has been installed to complete the project.
