Lyon launches Lumen – lighting hub of the future
The City of Lyon launched the construction of Lumen, a 6000 m2 collaborative space in the Confluence area of Lyon, which aims to become a hub for lighting professionals from the region and beyond.
The ceremony took place on the International Day of Light, 16 May, in the presence of the Mayor of Lyon Gérard Collomb and President of Lyon Métropole David Kimelfeld, along with Anne Pellet from the Auvergne Rhône Alpes region, Emmanuel Imberton, President of the Lyon Chamber of Commerce and Philippe Badaroux, President of Cluster Lumière.
With a surface area of almost 6 000 m2, LUMEN aims to become the emblematic place for actors of light, a space where all professionals in the sector can « live and work together ».
Co-managed by the Lumière Cluster and the CARDINAL Group, LUMEN will offer a range of offices, meeting rooms, showrooms and technological experimentation spaces whose main objective is to boost and highlight the business activity of its future occupants.
The building, designed by Agence a + samuel delmas, with lighting design by Anne Bureau of Wonderfulight, is set to be delivered in 2021.
