Oikokatu is a small street section in Jyväskylä. This special wooden pole project is situated next to children´s playground in Mäki-Matti area which also incorporates Tehomet´ s wooden poles with other wooden playground structures from other providers.
It is also possible to think lighting poles as a platform for other functions than functional street lighting. This approach was a driver for Lighting Designer Ari Tiilikainen when he designed special poles to Oikokatu in Jyväskylä. Double pole structure allows a different way to install post top luminaires and space in between the poles enables to mount led illuminated signboard where is possible to attach announcements, commercials or act as a creative platform for little artists. This design approach combines two common urban functions together: communication and lighting.
