Valeo lights up the Obelisk in Paris’ Place de la Concorde
The inspiring construction is a result of artist, Milène Guermont's partnership with Valeo.

The monumental installation named ‘Phares’ uses 128 of Valeo’s Cibié OSCAR LED headlamps attached to a delicate gold-coloured metal framework shaped like a pyramid.

The ‘haute couture’ artwork, highlights France’s cultural heritage and will illuminate the obelisk until February 2016.

The Valeo headlamps, selected by Milène Guermont, are consistent with the sustainable energy commitments set out by the COP21.

The Cibié OSCAR 100 per cent LED headlamps provide unrivalled lighting power, visible from up to 2,200 meters away, delivering energy savings of around 70 per cent and lasting ten times longer than halogen bulbs.

The OSCAR beams will project light from the installation well beyond the Place de la Concorde and the Palais Bourbon.
