River­front Park, located in Troy New York is revamped after years of it declin­ing with age. The upgrade included an expan­sion with var­i­ous path­ways con­nect­ing the park to the down­town area pro­vid­ing improved land­scapes with beau­ti­ful Hudson River views. Newly added out­door seat­ing was installed for vis­i­tors coming for the amphithe­ater, farm­ers market, summer con­certs, fit­ness classes and other fes­tiv­i­ties held at the park through­out the year.

Upgrades also included improved storm water frame­work and energy-effi­cient light­ing. Selux Lanova Cate­nary and a custom Ritorno Round Sym­met­ric was used for the park’s exte­rior light­ing.

Lanova Cate­nary was the per­fect instal­la­tion because of its pre­cise place­ment of light. It is sus­pended from cables light­ing the path­way for pedes­tri­ans with­out inter­fer­ence. It com­bines a pur­pose­ful illu­mi­na­tion with a a sense of safety and secu­rity.

The custom Selux Ritorno Round Sym­met­ric was used for its unique use of light. The indi­rect light­ing pro­vid­ing the per­fect bal­ance of per­for­mance and ele­gance, allow­ing for har­mo­nious park light­ing.

  • Ritorno by Selux uses indirect lighting to produce uniform, shadow-free distributions while creating a comfortable ambiance. Uniquely-designed shades on Ritorno, help block light from off-site glare. Use Ritorno individually on a pole or wall mount, or combine light engine and shades into unique configurations. The Ritorno LED retrofit kit can replace less energy-efficient modules without the need for complete new fixtures.
  • Lanova by Selux is an attractive LED luminaire perfect for a designer needing improved visual guidance and purposeful light. Lanova allows you the design freedom to position the light exactly where it is required with a luminous focal point or a dramatic shadow. It creates the perfect ambience - a modest light during the day transforms to a functional and energizing light by nightfall. Lanova creates excellent visibility and enhanced safety and security in large public areas such as parks, plazas, and campus squares. Lanova catenary and pendant systems deliver a wide range of looks and optical options. The two optical system options include the Gen5 technical versions (Type I, Type II, Type III, Type IV, Type V Round, and Type V Square) and a diffuse ambience version.
