Blenda Bike Stand Brings Light to an Architectural Icon

2020–12–10

Architects BAU installed Nola’s Blenda bike stands in the concourse outside Stockholm's iconic Tomteboda building, an architectural landmark. As Blenda’s integrated LED lighting units showed cyclists where to insert locks, they lit up the surroundings for pedestrians too. 

Nola arbetar kontinuerligt med att utveckla cykelområdet med lösningar för en trygg och hållbar utomhusmiljö. En cykelpollare med LED-belysning har många tekniska fördelar och skapar samtidigt tillgängliga och upplysta platser, extra värdefulla under höst- och vinterhalvåret.

Nolas cykelpollare Blenda, formgiven av Blenda Design, är en stram och enkel miljöbedömd cykelpollare för ramlåsning i underhållsfri pulverlackerad aluminium. Utrustad med LED-belysning underlättar den vid parkering, lyser upp och skapar trygghet i närmiljön.

Användning av LED-belysning utomhus medför många fördelar under höst- och vinterhalvåret i form av tryggare och mer tillgängliga platser för både cyklar och människor. Tekniken ger också miljömässiga fördelar då belysningen är energisnål samtidigt som pollarens utformning reducerar onödigt spilljus och ljusföroreningar.
