THE MYSTERIOUS TRANSPARENCY
Following his experience with alabaster, Alain Ellouz set his sights on the challenge of working with rock crystal’s natural transparency. Inspired by the traditions of chandelier-makers, jewellers and watchmakers, our designs are spectacular sources of wonder.
A NEW STEP
IN A NOBLE TRADITION
For millennia, rock crystal’s translucent appearance and luminous effects have fascinated its beholders. Greeks compared the rock crystals to ice, others described the stone as being ‘solidified light’ or the ‘sublime union of water and air’. It took a long tradition of sculpting to master the stone’s hardness, leaving behind a legacy of noble, lavish and precious pieces of art. Today, Atelier Alain Ellouz introduces rock crystal to the contemporary design world.
PRECISELY SELECTED CRYSTALS
Our crystals are carefully selected for their balance between transparency and their fissures called “phantoms”. The stone simultaneously contains and conveys light in order to magnify it. For each chandelier, crystals are conscientiously associated.
SHAPED LIKE JEWELRIES
Atelier Alain Ellouz rock crystal lighting collection draws its inspiration from jewellery prisms. Hand cutting confers each crystal a perfect shaping.
INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY
Each detail of the manufacturing process, such as the hanging concept for crystals or the lighting process, is thoroughly studied. We use exclusive, innovative LED technology to create luminous effects on the crystals. Our patents guarantee our customers authentic creations.
