Lumca EquiparcJune 05 2016

Stemming from a meeting at the ASLA in Denver in 2014 between Equiparc and Lumca, an idea was conceived to create a family of products that combines stylish urban site furniture with lighting—all of which were tailored to the evolving needs of forward-thinking landscape architects and urban planners. The two companies called upon the services of renowned Morelli Designers to create the collection. Lumca and Equiparc then dedicated their design teams and technical experts to the manufacturing process.

And the Tango collection was born.

It is the result of the creativity of Morelli Designers and expertise of Lumca and Equiparc, which worked together to develop a never-before-seen product line for the entire North American market. Sharing the same commitment to quality and innovation as well as a passion for creating stunning public spaces, these two partners successfully overcame the project’s technical and technological challenges.

The collection’s sleek lines pay tribute to both nature and dance, featuring elegant and very avant-garde curves.In addition to its luminaires, lighted columns and bollards with curved poles, the Tango series features benches, planters, bike racks and waste and recycling receptacles that blend the best wood species with highly robust metal. Every single detail of Tango has been carefully designed: the light diffusion is integral to the concept as it gives all the products natural elegance and perfect harmony with their surroundings.

“The Tango product line is the result of a design team’s efforts to merge lighting and urban furniture into one entity. The series is complete, refined and unique. Urban planners can now benefit from site furniture that has both functional and decorative lighting. As an industry first, it is the epitome of form and nature coming together as one,” explained Michel Morelli, President of Morelli Designers Inc.
