Sheraton Grand Bengaluru Whitefield Hotel & Convention Center

Bangalore, India

In the heart of India’s Silicon Valley, business and leisure travellers can enjoy an upscale Bangalore stay at the Sheraton Grand Bengaluru Whitefield Hotel & Convention Center. Preciosa Lighting was asked to create an outstanding, memorable installation that would fit beautifully within the overall ambience of luxury embraced by the space.

To meet this request, Preciosa created three monumental chandeliers for the hotel’s lobby. Each chandelier is ten metres long and features clear and striped hand-blown opal leaves. To create each leaf, the glassblower blows into the pipe as the glass piece is stretched and twisted into the desired shape. Preciosa achieved two challenges with this project; creating an impression of lightness and air, despite using a high density of components and completing the project in only eight months.
