Quirky Comic Book Street Lamps Light Up A Road In Montreal
By Jillian Wong, 06 Jan 2014
Montreal-based creative studio Turn Me On Design recently lit up Avenue Mont-Royal in the Canadian city with a fun comic book street lamp installation.
It was created for a project called IDEA-O-RAMA which won a competition by the Development Corporation of Mount Royal Avenue in 2012.
The quirky lamps are shaped like comic book speech bubbles and feature wacky characters interacting with each other. The display plates are changeable, allowing for different themes according to the seasons or events. The lamp lights also change colors throughout the day, ensuring they are visible to pedestrians and motorists at all times.
Graphic designers Astro and Jean-François Poliquin were behind the designs, which were created to reflect the identity and energy of the area, and to bring some color and cheer to the people and surroundings.
