Aptus is an illuminated, sculptural bollard designed by the international award-winning product designer, Terence Woodgate. Inspired by the work of Spanish sculptor Eduardo Chillida, Terence uses the aesthetic of a partial cut, to bend the Aptus light head up from the body.

Although available in different finishes, the Cor-Ten steel version changes appearance as it weathers. On a dry, sunny day, it is brightly oxidised, almost orange and on a wet day, dark and mellow. Configurations include single or double width versions with down and up lighting options. With its natural finish and light configurations, Aptus will suit a variety of landscape applications.
