With Hans Scharoun Square in the Stuttgart-Rot district, a new district centre, which did not previously exist in this form, has emerged. The successful combination of housing, commercial space and a diverse local shopping centre around the square, along with direct access to public transport, ensures high quality of life and gained special recognition for the new centre: the awarding of the German Developer Prize 2016 in the “New Construction” category. Timeless Hess CITY ELEMENTS illuminating columns are responsible for homogeneous illumination of the square in the evening and night hours.


CITY ELEMENTS illuminating columns provide a pleasant lighting atmosphere and good illumination of the entire square in evening and night hours. With different heights of four and six meters and asymmetric light distribution, they ensure high quality lighting. In addition to the timeless design, CITY ELEMENTS offers high efficiency. “The ability to be flexible through light modules and cover the entire surface of the square with few Illumination points played an important role in the selection of luminaires”, says Heike Mössner, explaining the lighting concept.


Depending on the location, the illuminating columns are equipped with one or two powerful LEVO LED modules from Hess in the light colour 4000 K. Their installation on the square perimeter enables versatile use of the square centre without sacrificing visual comfort and light quality.


CITY ELEMENTS from Hess is a luminaire system that is suitable for all requirements in the city and in front of prestigious and high-profile buildings. These modular illuminating columns are suitable for any lighting tasks and fit perfectly with the existing urban surroundings, as well as with a wide range of architectural requirements, thank to their characteristics: individually combinable base, intermediate and terminating elements, two different diameters, various lighting technologies and variable heights of up to 9 meters and above.

Furthermore, a variety of additional function and supply solutions for various municipal and technical requirements can be implemented with CITY ELEMENTS, such as electricity and water supply, Christmas illuminations, camera installation in security areas, emergency calls, attractive light projections and e-mobility functions.
