A sparkling affair honouring innovative lighting across the region
The Light Middle East Awards showcase the brilliance in architectural lighting and design. The award ceremony was held October 17th in Dubai. More than 600 lighting industry professionals attended the seventh annual event.
The Light Middle East Awards has nine project and six product categories, each highlighting the importance of lighting design. The 2019 Awards saw the introduction of ‘Personality of the Year’ and ‘Distributor of the Year’ categories.
Preciosa Lighting was shortlisted in the following categories:
Decorative Chandelier of the Year: Carousel of Light
Decorative Chandelier of the Year: Canopy of Light designed in collaboration with DESIGNWILKES
Light Art Project of the Year: Carousel of Light
Personality of the Year: Martin Fryzelka, Managing Director, Preciosa Gulf
Carousel of Light was introduced at Euroluce 2019. It is an interactive installation, powered by movement. Enter the pearl curtain; our colourful lights will lead your path. As you wander through, the lights above light up, fading away as you move on. The installation becomes a part of the visitor’s journey, lighting a beautiful crystal path as their exploration continues. To make it easier for people to absorb themselves in the spectacle, the platform rotated, allowing guests to keep their eyes focused on the pearls. Carousel of Light is composed of nearly 8000 spheres in opal, amber frosted, clear and pink frosted hues stretching eight metres in diameter. The spheres are hung in groups of four, almost 2000 suspensions in total.
Carousel of Light is inspired by the Preciosa Signature Design Pearl Curtain. The Pearl Curtain concept is inspired by the rich draping of curtains in formal spaces. Similar to curtains, the design allows for the “layering” of colours or materials. Different illumination options are possible to make the design completely customizable. The design presents a rich and opulent geometrical impression while keeping a clearly contemporary style.
Preciosa’s Signature Designs are completely customizable according to a space’s size, design, and use. They are authentic, timeless and celebrate design. Creative craftsmanship is evident through the versatility of each light; customizable for a space and its uses. They present contemporary styles with timeless quality.
This November, Dubai will be sparkling with thousands of spheres of Bohemian crystal. Carousel of Light, an interactive installation inspired by movement and love will be making its Middle East debut at Downtown Design Dubai.
