Pole top lighting can be used most effectively to illuminate areas of social gathering and interaction. Parks and cultural spaces can be celebrated as they are lit by the overhead distribution of light. Open spaces can be enjoyed freely when pole top lighting is used, maximising space with minimal structure. Cultural or architectural elements can be emphasised and expressed by the directional flexibility of the pole top light. Potential light pollution is avoided and reduced by the focused individual pole top illumination, proving it to be the most efficient and successful form of light to guide and protect open areas, yet.
