Chelsom was recently commissioned to supply bespoke public area lighting on-board Crystal Cruises’ newest addition to the fleet, the luxury 5- star plus Crystal Esprit. The ship marks Crystal Cruises first foray in to the super yacht market as part of a major growth plan for the company.
Chelsom worked closely with the design team at AD Associates to create a unique lighting scheme designed to enhance the striking contemporary interior concept whilst demonstrating not only their ability to bring a designer’s vision to reality but above all else showcasing their superb engineering capabilities.
Stand out fittings include a magnificent ceiling fixture for the Cove Lounge consisting of multiple rows of triedri crystal drops suspended from an Antique Brass rectangular frame and illuminated by LED retrofit lamps to create a truly eye-catching centrepiece. Along a similar design aesthetic, a configuration of nine rings of varying sizes were designed to adorn the ceiling of the contemporary Patio Café, featuring triedri crystal drops suspended from Antique Brass frames and illuminated by LED light sources.
Chelsom created a dramatic waterfall effect statement lighting installation for the Yacht Club which comprised of Antique Brass rods fitted to an Antique Brass frame interspersed with crystal rods of varying heights to create a striking wave aesthetic. Chelsom also created the main lighting feature for the reception area featuring decorative Antique Brass rods from which hang teardrop shaped illuminations positioned at random to emanate a cascade of water.
