#30: Bollards That Light Up, France
Europe really loves their bollards. They’re always experimenting and trying new things with these sturdy sentinels. This crosswalk in the business district of La Défense, France, jazzed up its bollards by making them luminous. The color of the posts changes based on the pedestrian signal color. They’re on 24/7, regardless of whether the sun is out.
If you look closely, you can see that the red glow of the posts matches the LED crosswalk signal. Pretty neat! This is a nice, accessible touch to a classic crosswalk. On top of that, they made the luminescent bollards look totally classy. Their subtle, modern glow would fit into any futuristic sci-fi city.
