The lightness of elementary forms made of stainless steel helps evolve the identity of public space, stimulating the senses and transforming our perception of the environment. The mission of the Oceanic Series is to express the relationship between ocean and architecture.
ORIGIN AND EVOLUTION
The Oceanic Series is the result of integrating the visual lightness of the ocean into urban space. A stainless steel finish AISI304 or AISI316 connects the unit with the environment, tracing an aesthetic link with aquatic life. At night, a path of light transforms the urban scene. Through positional light distribution, the upper light body creates a serene atmosphere, evoking a feeling of warmth and welcome.
MATERIALS AND STRUCTURE
The Oceanic beacon consists of a polished AISI316 or AISI304 stainless steel structure, suitable for aggressive environments characterized by a high degree of salinity or other corrosive agents. The upper body comprises a methacrylate cylindrical light diffuser highly resistant to solar radiation, and an LED optical module with a bi-directional light distribution and watertightness level of IP68.
The Oceanic beacon incorporates one of the world’s most recycled materials—steel. Reintroducing steel to the production cycle of other industries at end of useable life will produce significant energy savings compared with other metals. Unlike aluminium injection, for example, extruded aluminium used for manufacturing the chassis sink facilitates reuse in other product categories.
Here are the basic dimensions of the Oceanic series:
