Constellation

A starry sky over New York City

The constellations in the night sky and the lights and shadows of the New York City nightscape inspired Rockwell Group designers to create a collection of lighting fixtures called Constellation. The collection is dominated by a spectacular chandelier conceived to give the feeling that you are looking right into the eyes of the universe.

The dominant piece of the collection is a horizontal chandelier with the recognizable silhouette of the constellation Cassiopeia. The shape of the floor lamp is reminiscent of Polaris while the wall sconce evokes the Belt of Orion. Each piece is a complete original.

Constellation collection includes a chandelier, a wall sconce, and a floor lamp. The dominant piece of the collection is a horizontal chandelier with the recognizable silhouette of the constellation Cassiopeia.

Quality

The collection mainly emphasizes light itself, and therefore also shows off the quality and functionality of the lighting components.

Starlight

The lighting effect is further enhanced by the LED light sources that were thoughtfully designed to allow for both surface illumination into the space as well as spot illumination on the ceiling, thus credibly imitating starlight.

Imagine the stars in the night sky connected by an imaginary line to form mythical constellations – this is the original idea behind the new Constellation collection. But it was not only the starry sky but all the lights of the New York City nightscape that inspired the designers of Rockwell Group to create the final artworks.

The final design solution was developed by LASVIT in collaboration with the Rockwell Group architectural studio, where the main challenge was to find a subtle and almost invisible way to fix all the light points. At the same time, the solution had to be systematic so that it could be used in different compositions according to the customer's wishes. In the end, the glass "stars" are connected by a glossy black metal structure. "This makes the luminaires convincingly evoke the feeling that you are looking into a clear night sky, even though you are actually standing inside the building. This creates a pleasantly intimate atmosphere in the interior," add the designers from Rockwell Group.

"When designing the collection, we got inspired by the sparkling constellations in the night sky, but also the illuminated New York City landmarks and the sophisticated decorations that embellish the ceilings of such famous buildings as the Metropolitan Opera House or Grand Central Terminal. We explored the way glass and light interact in these places, and then combined our findings with the Czech glassmaking tradition, aided by cutting-edge technology and our unique manufacturing know-how."
