Crystal Biosphere Mesmerizes at Design Shanghai
Preciosa Lighting is just back from a fabulous week in Shanghai. We introduced a special version of our award-winning Crystal Biosphere and were overwhelmed with the wonderful response. In fact, our zen garden installation even received a Design Shanghai Picks award. Exhibition judges were asked to choose installations that inspired them and we are honoured they chose Crystal Biosphere as a “beautiful product that spoke the design language of Design Shanghai.”
For Crystal Biosphere’s Asian debut we asked Chinese zen garden artists to contribute a personal approach that would create a unique atmosphere. We placed two chandeliers in the exhibition, one was called wind, the other one was called water. These two words in Chinese are pronounced feng shui. We therefore used these two chandeliers to bring a feng shui feeling to the concept.
This was the fifth year of Design Shanghai, Asia’s leading international design fair. One of the most exciting parts of the fair for us was the opportunity to meet so many leading interior designers and architects. Visitor numbers in general were very high with people coming from across China, Hong Kong and beyond.
Design Shanghai gave visitors and exhibitors the opportunity to discover some fascinating local brands, many who were cooperating with global star designers. People from all design disciplines realize Design Shanghai is the place to discover new brands and cooperation possibilities. The fair also hosted talks featuring some of the world’s design icons including Ben Wu, Kelly Hoppen and Paolo Pinfarina to name only three.
This was Preciosa Lighting’s first time exhibiting at Design Shanghai and it was a very rewarding experience. Thank you to all who were able to visit our special zen biosphere and we hope to make a return visit in 2019.
