Not one, but two awards for this innovative light installation.

Preciosa's Carousel of Light has received a gold iF Design Award, recognised as a symbol of design excellence around the world.

In October, the installation won Decorative Chandelier of the Year in the Light Middle East Awards.

What makes it so special?

Carousel of Light is composed of nearly 8,000 spheres in opal, amber frosted, clear and pink frosted hues, stretching eight metres in diameter. As visitors As wander through, the lights above light up, fading away as they move on.

Inspired by the Preciosa Signature Design Pearl Curtain, Carousel of Light originally appeared at Euroluce 2019 and made its second appearance at Downtown Design Dubai in November 2019.

Judges said of the installation: “By creating a carousel of light tracked to each visitor, this Salone del Mobile exhibition puts smiles on peoples' faces and connects strangers for a brief moment. Instagrammable, interactive and poetic!”
