Bollards lining a pathway in a park

Stump bollard by Peter Bysted for Icono

Dezeen Showroom: designer Peter Bysted and Danish lighting company Icono have released a sturdy outdoor light that aims to reduce light pollution.

Stump was designed to illuminate outside areas on the Island of Møn in southern Denmark, which is a certified Dark Sky Community. Here residents are required to help keep low levels of light pollution in order to maintain the island's reputation as a place for stargazing.

The bollard has an oxidised cast iron body and transparent cap containing a warm-toned, low-energy lighting fixture that glows gently when in use.

Stump's undulating base creates shadows throughout the day and its sturdy structure means it can be used as a stool for people to lean on.

The design aims to blend non-obstructively into outdoor environments while providing light on pathways in both private and public outdoor spaces.

"Stump's emission of light is non-blinding and dedicated to illuminating parks and paths – just enough to ensure safety," said Icono.
