With the aim of connecting people through light, Preciosa Lighting chose to highlight sparkle in its newest lighting design concept. Diamond Cloud is a crafted crystal lighting art masterpiece, inspired by a special Bohemian cut and designed to bring maximum brilliance to any space.

“The Diamond Cut is the basic inspiration for this design, and it also led to its name, Diamond Cloud,” says Preciosa’s creative director, Michael Vasku. “When a crystal triangular rod featuring the Diamond Cut is lit, each of the facets looks different and adds a rich depth to the installation as a whole.

“Our aim with Diamond Cloud was to reduce the amount of crystal components to the relevant amount and align them correctly. Once they are properly oriented they appear organised, but still maintain the sparkling quality that communicates the use of a precious material.”

Diamond Cloud is notable for the strategic arrangement of the rods. The deliberate design gives the installation diversity, layers, and a richness of rhythm. Every side of the light’s pattern has a different look because every edge is defined using a component with a different surface treatment. The smallest detailed cut on every component escalates the fixture’s overall appearance.

Included in the arrangement are the placement and amount of suspensions. This is important, because if faceted crystals are not properly aligned, the installation can look chaotic.  Preciosa’s creative team properly aligns Diamond Cloud’s suspensions based on the vision of the designer regarding size, construction principles, illumination methods, etc. This ensures the completed installation presents a clean, luxurious look.

The versatility of Diamond Cloud is one of its greatest attributes. Designers can choose clear or frosted components, as well as the fixture’s size and shape. The installation can be static, or RGBW capabilities can be added to make it dynamic. Designers can choose a Preciosa-designed Diamond Cloud to adapt to their space, or create one themselves with support from the company’s designers.
