QIM Street Lights – Montréal, Québec

Dallaire-lampDallaire-lamp-close

This distinctive tandem lighting solution is part of a family of public furniture designed for Quartier international de Montréal. According to Dallaire, the aesthetic vocabulary of the collection was “inspired by the contrast of the circle with the absolute vertical rectitude”. In that sense, these street lights are arguably the centerpiece of the collection.

Materially, the designs are unified through the use of aluminum – extruded, sand-cast, die-cast and machined. Here, aluminum extrusions house a central post, to which standard signage, traffic lights and other elements are fixed. The seams between the extrusions nicely accommodate these protruding fixtures.
