De Dam, Amsterdam
In the year 2002 we realised one of our most prestigious projects, namely the columns on the Dam, Amsterdam's iconic central square. Amsterdam city engineers , advised by our experts , worked together on the design for the square. We were responsible for the technical design , production and installation of the columns , which included extreme requirements for the design , construction and mechanical rigidity . This is because the columns were used to attach and support the power supply cables for the trams which cross the Dam continuously.
All columns, 10 high and 32 low , are made of stainless steel. Stainless steel reflects the colour of the environment at daytime and sparkles at night . The low columns are equipped with an innovative external reflector technology, the effect of which is to soften the indirect light and make passage across the square a pleasant experience. If you would like some more information about our Lighting Columns please take a look at the documentation here.
