Costa Smeralda

  • Client: Costa Cruises
  • Designer: Rockwell Group

Chelsom worked with lead architect Adam Tihany and the designers at Rockwell Group in NYC to make the design vision for this spectacular centrepiece fitting a reality. The scale of the project meant that collaboration was key, not only with the design team but with the shipyard, owners, project management teams and architects. Our expertise within this sector means we are perfectly positioned to manage such a large scale newbuild project.

The beautiful cluster of ornate glass chandeliers spans a 4 meter diameter and cumulatively creates a commanding centrepiece for the Archipelago restaurant onboard the luxurious Costa Smeralda ship. The chandelier is made from artisan mouthblown glass in three unique designs and lit by retrofit LED lamps. The light effect is varied owing to the trio of different glass types used. The metalwork has been finished in a high quality Brass finish made to the exacting standards required for a marine project.
