The Montreal Gazette recently turned the spotlight on the city’s Plan Lumière, a long-term urban lighting initiative breathing new life into Old Montreal’s architecture. The paper published two separate articles in a three-page spread, which profiled the work of Éclairage Public’s Gilles Arpin and put the spotlight on his use of Lumenpulse’s LED fixtures.
