The LIO line of outdoor lighting products draws its inspiration from the clean, simple lines and comforting, enveloping light renderings found in interior fixtures, from which it takes its name Lighting Inside Out. The design of the luminaire is totally human-centered in terms of its appearance, installation system, maintenance, end-of-life cycle and lighting performance. The luminaire is equipped with a remote connection system (IOT) that allows to modulate the lighting intensity according to the place where the luminaire is installed, the time of the day and the season. Its optical system is equipped with an anti-glare glass lens that evens out the light. The luminaire in its morphology eliminates the intrusive luminous flux as well as the uplight minimizing its impact on light pollution. The product is made of 90% recycled/recyclable aluminum. Its surface finish is made of baked polyester powder paint applied electrostatically, which gives it a long-lasting appearance. The modularity of the parts that make it up allows the product to be customized in terms of its surface finish, both in terms of color and texture. As the product is intended for short production runs, the shaping processes have been chosen accordingly, such as the use of destructive molds and digital cutting.
