    On behalf of the co-owners of the Tour Maine Montparnasse, the lighting designer, Régis Clouzet, imagined a sustainable and evolutionary lighting in partnership with Signify. "With this subtle lighting design, carried out with our partner Vinci Energies Citéos, Signify contributes a new signature to the urban night landscape of Paris," says Benjamin Azoulay, CEO Signify France.

    Signify was chosen for its expertise in creating real luminous pictures of light. "Paris, city of light, would equip its highest building with an innovative and sustainable lighting solution" continues Benjamin Azoulay.

    The objective of the project is twofold: to create a pleasant atmosphere for the residents and to add to the prestige of the building by making it visible from a distance:

    A vision of proximity: the implemented solution consists exclusively of Color Kinetics' iColor Accent luminaires, which are installed inside the building. To avoid any discomfort to the occupants, they have been integrated in a visually aesthetic box. In the daytime, the luminaires are not visible from the inside or the outside of the building.

    A distant vision: 58 ColorReach luminaires (now specified with ReachElite) have been installed on the top floor. The new lighting is thus visible throughout the Parisian region, visible to its 12 million inhabitants. The results go beyond the objectives set by Régis Clouzet, since the complete outline of the tower is visible from more than 8 km (5 miles).
