Mandelieu - FRANCE

A place Mandelieu-la-Napoule is a town located in the Alpes-Maritimes department of the Provence-Alpes- Côte d’Azur region in Southeastern France. This tourist town is ideally located on the French Riviera, just to the southwest of Cannes, and offers many maritime and forest panoramas. The city is home to the largest forest of mimosas and is known for its festival dedicated to this tree. Its castle, a former medieval fortress built in the 14th century, is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea and is listed as a historical monument, as are its gardens. It is the property of the Napoule Art Foundation.

A need As part of the renovation of public lighting around the castle of Mandelieu-la-Napoule, the Mayor of the city, Mr Leroy, and his deputies wanted to bring a new atmosphere to this district. The Mayor of the town himself selected the BOREAL LED luminaire during his visit to the Salon des Maires et des Collectivités Territoriales. Its design is reminiscent of ancient Venetian lanterns and makes it possible to create festive atmospheres thanks to its mask. It also offers the possibility of being personalised to pay homage to the city’s identity.

A Schréder SIGNATURE solution Schréder SIGNATURE suggested including the emblem of the city in the mask. This proposal immediately won over the Mayor. The various elements of the coat of arms, such as the squirrel, a symbol of liveliness and independence, and the castle’s ramparts, adorn the mask. As a result, Mandelieu-La-Napoule benefits from unique lighting in its appearance, creating a new atmosphere by day and at night while respecting the law on light pollution. During the day, the stainless steel mask with mirror finish enhances the spaces. At night, it becomes a decorative element thanks to the colour effects generated by a dichroic filter. This diffracts the light, thus creating a warm and festive atmosphere in the streets of the city, while highlighting the architecture and heritage. Locals and tourists can now experience the city from a different perspective as they stroll through its alleys.
