Decluttered lights,

spacious streets


Cluttered streets can be unwelcoming, unattractive – and at their worst, unsafe. But as urban areas grow, greater visibility is needed in pedestrian precincts. That means more lamp posts, and less space on the ground.


FreeStreet was designed to provide welcoming light for pedestrians and cyclists, while reducing the need for lamp posts. This suspended system hangs above the street, utilizing lightweight luminaires that are barely visible during the day. At night, the light sources appear to be hovering in the air. Their compact cabling makes it easy for residents to look up and enjoy the night sky.


The FreeStreet system only needs to be connected to a façade every 100m for electricity, resulting in flexible installation options. In addition, energy-efficient LEDs mean that FreeStreet creates electricity savings of up to 60% compared with conventional street lighting.


FreeStreet - Street lighting


FreeStreet suspended lighting system represents a completely new vision of public lighting.

The FreeStreet lighting system can be applied in multiple applications.
