Urban lighting is culture, social cohesion and revitalization. Technology that co-exists in everyday life, connecting space and emotion, and fusing with collective memory.
ORIGIN AND EVOLUTION
In many urban lighting applications, the fixture is placed in a post-top position at less than 4 metres height and becomes part of the observer’s natural viewing angle. The Empathy is designed to enhance the way we look at public space, creating a light body based on the lower multi-LED system projecting over the upper body reflection system.
The outcome is an urban atmosphere where visual comfort is as important as the aesthetic affinity between luminaire and onlooker.
MATERIALS AND STRUCTURE
The Empathy series body consists of a main AISI 316 or AISI 314 Stainless Steel structure, a cylindrical PMMA diffuser with UV protection and a post-top arm made of L-2520 (EN 44100) cast aluminium.
The lower area of the assembly incorporates a separate and removable optical LED module, with a watertightness rating of IP67. This element is integrated over a heat sink chassis made of L-2520 (EN 44100) cast aluminium.
The Empathy heat dissipation system is a single, compact piece of EN AC-44100 cast aluminium. Continuous thermal dissipation between the PCB and the exterior improves the conductivity of the lamp, compared with architectures composed of different components and materials. The complete elimination of air gaps between the PCB and the dissipation body enhances thermal contact between both elements. To achieve this, the body is initially machined and straightened, for a flat, rough surface. A thermal graphite pad of graphite completes the union.
Dimensions and installation
The EMPATHY lantern was born as a solution for urban lighting of less than 4 meters. Create a warm atmosphere suitable for these environments.
Its light body is based on the projection of the lower multi-LED system on an upper reflector body.
This lantern is designed with a robust joint that allows the product to be used on vertical supports (post-top position) up to Ø76mm.
