Lisburn – Market Square

Bespoke Lighting Columns Reflect the City's History

The four main columns were designed to celebrate the prosperous linen industry in Lisburn and represent fabric flowing through the machines of a local factory. Scribed into the bottom of these structures are key moments in the city’s history, including when it was founded in 1609. These sculptural columns make for a unique and memorable space for the public to enjoy.

Using Corten steel to create parts of the columns created a great modern, rusted appearance. Corten is unique in that the rust layer protects the core metal underneath. Whilst powerful lighting evenly illuminates the square, making for an inviting space, smart LEDs flow with the columns shape. The colour of these LEDs can be changed to correspond with the time of year or for public events.
