Index Tower DIFC - Breath of Light


“It started with the idea of doing something more conceptual,” explained Michael Vasku, Creative Director at Preciosa. “We wanted to lower the light down to a human level. Most of the time it’s a crown, hidden away up there as an unreachable chandelier. Here we want you to get up close.”

The breath-as-light function was inspired partly by the manner in which historic chandeliers would have their flames blown out to darken the room, though flipped and reversed so that breath creates the illumination rather than ending it.
