Tolstoy: All the variety, all the charm, all the beauty of life is composed of


Let the urban space become the stage of life. Design that stage with shadow and light – exciting and dramatic. Be the director of this outdoor stage.

With the SHADOW LIGHTS – made by Hess.

From basic illumination that discreetly blends with the surroundings to exciting effects of shadow and light – with SHADOW LIGHTS, all options are open to you.

Nearly hidden light sources do not emit stray light upwards into the sky, meeting “dark sky” requirements. This way, the urban space is designed in a mindful way while atmospheric and astonishing effects are created.

SHADOW LIGHTS are available in three variants – transforming any urban space into a stage. Either preset spotlights with a fixed lighting configuration or spotlights individually controlled and aligned referring to the space’s needs – it is up to you.


STAGE 1 features simplicity. Due to preset modules, only the number of inserts and the height of the SHADOW LIGHTS need to be planned. Everything else is already done – so this option is ready for the most common applications!


The STAGE 2 version offers you a high level of variability. In contrast to STAGE 1, you can combine different modules and lighting characteristics and rotate the modules up to 360 degrees as required. Immerse yourself in the design of your stage set!


STAGE 3 – Our premium product with a maximum of creativity! Choose from a variety of elements and heights and enjoy the benefits of full variability for each spotlight – to achieve an unique stage setting according to your requirements. STAGE 3 – Let the show begin!
