Stanislav Kadlec

CEO of Preciosa

June 2017
Preciosa Lighting is part of the Preciosa Group, one of the world leaders in the field of high-pre- cision cut crystal components. The roots of the Czech company can be traced back to the 18th century. In early 2017, it ignited a new chapter, which was presented at the Fuorisalone in Milan. “The cultivation of chandeliers in the Bohemian tradition dating back to 1724, expresses what Preciosa has been celebrating for many years. Cultivating and manufacturing chandeliers, and most importantly, keeping them so vivid that they always reflect the zeitgeist and define a lifestyle, make a statement for the future”, comments Stanislav Kadlec. “That not only means developing and reinterpreting the existing iconic chandeliers, but also creating tailor-made solutions. In order to demonstrate this category of cultivation, we are permanently working on unique solutions, such as Crystal Biosphere, which combines three outstanding concepts that also have strong individual meanings.” Like many other installa- tions created by Preciosa, Crystal Biosphere is based on a greater understanding of spaces. Its purpose is not only illumination, but also staging and individual refinement.
