Intercontinental Hotel
Tianjin, 2018 - China

A Star Was Born…
Do you sometimes feel alone? Lost in the chaotic world full of seemingly pointless responsibilities? People stopped looking at the stars above their heads and the appreciation for beauty is slowly disappearing from our lives. But don’t panic, there are still places keeping the light of the beauty alive.

Story Behind the Design
“At a certain moment and place, the universe brings interstellar dust together and a star is born. It pulses with energy and shines bright with a power beyond this world,” says designer Jana Růžičková about her inspiration.

Road to the Creation
The journey from the inspiration to creation started at the desk. About 38 hours were spent clicking away the 3D model of Felix Stella

Overall 750 pieces of Czech glass were assembled to create the look of a star. Each piece conceals the internal LED module inside.

The eye-catching lighting effect is called dynamic lighting. Do you know what it is? The light travels through the installation according to pre-set scenarios. Sometimes it looks like a pack of fireflies, sometimes it’s a pulsing light.

Our technicians filled an empty hotel atrium with a shining beauty that is 20 meters wide and 27 meters tall. You could say that the space is filled to its fullest potential.

Overall feeling
The light of the glass star also fills the hearts of visitors with the unique beauty of light. This place will make you realize that you are never far away from space and its endless beauty, that you are part of it.
