Urban Life Lighting

Urban life lighting is about respecting the feel of the city by day, and inspiring people to explore and enjoy it at night. Whether it’s a welcoming public plaza, a carefully lit landmark facade or streetlights that show the way clearly and comfortably, Thorn lighting solutions define and open up urban spaces after dark, providing the right light for people, places and the environment.
