Crystal Swell

Preciosa Lighting for Los Angeles 
International Airport (LAX)

The Building - LAX Midfield Satellite Concourse

Preciosa Lighting designed and produced a statement lighting installation for a remote satellite concourse for the international terminal at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The design concept the teams worked on was called ‘ocean swell.’ They borrowed the dynamic oceanic theme of the International Terminal’s “breaking wave” roof and injected it with a feel of “mid-century jet age” modern simplicity.

Preciosa’s R&D team had to calculate, simulate and test every aspect of the light to ensure the installation met all safety regulations for seismically active areas.

RGBW LED strips were added for an extra sense of connection and fun. The airport can create various dynamic lighting scenes to celebrate local or global events.

Positive Praise

“We always envisioned that it would be a prominent piece but I must say that seeing it in place, it is even more impressive than I imagined it would be,” said Brent Kelley, from Corgan, who supplied the project’s architectural and interior design services.
