Let’s Light Up Environmental Design

The lamps lighting up towns are nearly always a result of the study of their specific night function. The “Obelisco” lamp is a result of the need to guarantee harmonic presence both at night and in daytime. That’s why it’s in stainless steel, so that during the day the post reflects the variable inclination of the sun. It has a stellar shaft contrasting the lit parts to those in the shade.
