Designing the decoration of electricity poles to fit the urban landscape harmoniously.
THE SOLUTION IN DETAIL:
Specialised in urban landscaping, Aubrilam appealed to Ino-Rope with a clear challenge: to conceive a decoration for lampposts to be harmoniously integrated into the urban setting. The guidelines our client had come with mentioned an “old sailing ship mast” effect with natural colours and a traditional aspect. Selecting the adequate material was our starting point; finding a rope that met these criteria but that was also resistant to the weather conditions, more specifically high temperatures and UV, in a climate as exposed as Qatar’s.
We then focused on the technical development of the installation to provide a decoration that is long-lasting and can easily be reproduced for all pylons. The last stage of the project was to train the operators to install them on location.
