Preciosa Lighting

The Bohemian region represents one third of the current Czech Republic, in Central Europe. Known by its romantic landscapes and for its high lead content crystals, there are many other reasons for us to know what's being made best in this region.

By JORGE MATIAS

The history and art of traditional glassmaking can be found under one single roof in Crystal Valley (East of Prague). An unbelievable space of 900 square meters of creative energy and craftsmanship, blows life into one of a kind objects and installations made out of glass of the highest quality, ingeniously penetrated by sources of light. The process is unbelievably complex and interdisciplinary, involving many different specializations and teams of experts in respective fields.

Some resident designers spend their time within the manufacturing facilities reliving the atmosphere of old craftsmen creating glass chandeliers for royalties and wealthy families, centuries ago. A little further and we find a modern laboratory with progressive technologies and innovations that continuously challenge what is possible with various fascinating materials.

Although one could assume that the knowledge gathered over the centuries is sufficient, it is never enough for a truly passionate team of engineers. Emotionally driven to restlessly improve the glass lighting experience, they test new solutions and possibilities that can take this adventure to another level.

In the 17th century, Bohemia began to melt spectacularly crystal-clear glass whose clarity, brilliance and hardness was predestined for engraving and cutting. This glass, which came to be known as Bohemian crystal, became the country's specialty sought after throughout the world.

Working in a region influenced by people who devoted their lives to Bohemian glassmaking for centuries offers many benefits. And the company has always manufactured its own glass. Being at the source, brings a great deal of independence in producing original glass and crystal components. Trimmings of different sizes, shapes, and colours hang on chandeliers across luxurious interiors worldwide with adequate shine and pride.

The beauty of a chandelier consists of its smallest features. A steady hand and an eye for detail are essential for the elaborate process that transforms glass into a state of art. Even light installations hanging high above people's heads are expected to impress the senses from all ends and angles. The act of finding the perfect colour hue that would complement the rest of the interior is equally important as anything else.

Preciosa Lighting is part of the Preciosa Group, one of the world's leading companies in the field of high-precision cut crystal components. The company's roots date back to the year 1724. Over the centuries Preciosa has consolidated and expanded its knowledge of the characteristic properties of crystal. Today the company's expertise works magic on these delicate attributes: transparency, fragility and the ability to change its shape when still in liquid form.

… and, recently…

Preciosa Lighting debuted a magically playful installation at Milan Design Week called Breath of Light. Preciosa wasn't the only brand to incorporate technology into their installation. Invisible tech, sensor-based tech, and intuitivity were all experimented with by a variety of brands.
