Dean Skira interview: Polesano street lamp for Delta Light | Dezeen

Lighting designer Dean Skira explains how his Polesano street lamp for Delta Light can be used to light a multitude of different urban settings, in this movie Dezeen filmed for the Belgian lighting brand.

Polesano is Delta Light’s first large outdoor lighting system. Skira, who runs a lighting design studio in his hometown of Pula in Croatia, designed the modular street lamp to be as adaptable to different settings as possible.

“Polesano is a multi-functional urban device that provides all necessary forms of light in one single aesthetically unique structure in various different urban settings,” he says in the movie, which Dezeen shot at Skira’s studio in Pula and Delta Light’s headquarters in Belgium.

The lamp comprises a square pole, onto which multiple heads containing LEDs can be fitted. This allows it to provide different intensities and qualities of light depending on the environment that needs to be lit.

“If you have a park or a beautiful landscape setting in an urban environment, all of these different situations require different kinds of lighting,” Skira says.

The heads fitted to the pole can be angled in any direction and can be customised with a range of different optics to create different types of light – from spot lighting to flood lighting.

Skira claims that the manoeuvrability of the heads and range of optics available allow architects and designers to fine-tune the atmosphere created by the light.

“You can create various different visual environments and moods in one single space from one single position,” he explains.
