Outdoor Play with Ashbery Area Light by Landscape Forms
Landscape Forms is helping communities encourage play with its outdoor lighting. The Ashbery Area Light by Landscape Forms is a smart reinterpretation of “traditional-style lights that have a special place in the American lexicon.” While they look traditional, Ashbery Area Lights are anything but: they actually contain three LED lights that help reduce glare (which is, dare I say, brilliant).
Landscape Forms has one goal: “Enrich the spirit.” Outdoor lights, including the company’s Ashbery Area Light, make public spaces more welcoming. The architectural lighting is meant to “encourage play, nurture engagement, enhance city harmony, establish a sense of security, and make memorable experiences,” according to Landscape Forms.
Old City Park in Greenwood, IN uses Ashbery Area Lights to illuminate a colorful children’s playscape, as well as a dining area, 18-foot-wide promenade, pedestrian bridge, and bocce ball courts. People of all ages can now enrich their spirits once the sun sets.
Designed by architect Robert A.M. Stern, Ashbery Area Light features a patent-pending glare control system that “enables lower light levels and lower energy use with excellent visual acuity.” This is great for people to enjoy the park after dark—without suffering from overly bright light.
