Celestial Light

Art + Alchemy Introduces the Swarovski-lit Crystal Nebula Lighting System

The night sky knows how to put on a good show: think shooting stars, a super-moon, or the aurora borealis. No wonder Art + Alchemy, a luxury lighting studio, has looked to the heavens for inspiration. Its latest design, Crystal Nebula, is a stunning crystal and stainless-steel interpretation of an interstellar cloud – a spectacular celestial phenomenon that can be mounted on a wall.

With the design trade as its market, Art + Alchemy understands that a designer’s vision often requires a bespoke approach. The studio is renowned for its sculptural designs, the quality of materials, and its refined hand-finishes, and it seeks to create one-of-kind lighting for every interior, whether intimate or grand. Crystal Nebula makes this ambition simple to achieve, offering myriad configurations and a choice of finishes: sleek “Stainless Steel”, gloss-white “Snow”, or a combination of the two, as well as custom options – all made by talented craftsmen in Art + Alchemy’s Vermont atelier.

Their newest innovation, Crystal Nebula is incredibly versatile modular lighting system that incorporates Swarovski crystals. Available in three units, each a variation is set on a swirl of steel and features a single precision-cut crystal with a dimmable LED. All units are offered as a direct wire mount (for walls and ceilings) or a plug-in mount with a switch (for walls). What gives them so much creative potential is that each unit can work on its own as a subtle interior accent, with the option to add more in ever more elaborate arrangements. It’s even possible to join them together in multiple units that can be used to spread up a wall and across the ceiling in a stunning light installation.
