A lighting scenario, based on simplicity with a right and sober light and on a playful game in reference to the tanners’ vats rocks the banks of the Rhône

Alongside the pedestrian walk,  floodlights have been fastened to the existing lamp posts to make the riverbanks more welcoming at any hour of the night. The floodlights draw circles of light at irregular intervals along the quay to punctuate the 800-metre walk. During the week, the light is white, while at weekends it shades from blue to green.
