New outdoor decorations featuring 40,000 long-life, low-energy LED fairy lights were installed on place d’Armes at the beginning of the summer. The possible light display combinations are endless thanks to a smart system connecting all the individual bulbs in real time to a computer. Different atmospheres can be achieved using cascade lighting, twinkling effects, interactive patterns or even written texts. During non-festive periods, the square will be bathed in a uniform warm light, for a simple lighting effect. The strings of lights have breaking points integrated in the cables, so they can be extended and “grow” at the same rate as the trees.
