After four years of planning, the new Place Nationale de Montauban in France was inaugurated in July, with its new lighting.
The main challenge for this project was to find solutions that created a very flexible and scalable installation while fitting the fixtures into a particularly rich though restrictive architectural environment.
Quartiers Lumières, the company responsible for this project, offered the PROLIGHTS Mosaico
image projectors equipped with custom-made gobos that mapped the buildings' façade.
“These fixtures make it possible to provide soft, warm white atmospheres on a daily basis and to accompany the various nightlife events during the year via a remotely controllable DMX control system”, said the team at Quartiers Lumières.
The tests were done during the events by using a test pattern projection, to produce "mask gobos" so that the building could be mapped perfectly, while not shining any light on the windows.
The grounds and the fountain of the main square (including the dry fountain, water mirror and misting water jets) were done with the Mosaico Jr
fixtures that, in addition to their astonishing power and flexibility, ensured very good visual comfort and perfect daytime insertion.
