Octa is based on a geometric form of ancient origins: on the platonic solid of the octahedron, which, like all platonic solids, is perfectly symmetrical. Even more astounding are the fascinating reflections of these sleek luminaires - even the shape of the crystal itself seems to change with the viewing perspective, eye-catching through the resulting interplay, as well as through its brilliance. The eight facets of the double pyramid are arranged to create a powerful light display on ceilings or walls, while the luminaires also emit functional light. Its warm halogen light illuminates rooms pleasantly and evenly. As a ceiling luminaire, Octa is excellently suited for the general lighting of living and dining rooms furnished in a contemporary style. As a pendant luminaire, it is ideal for use above tables or bars.
In 1895, having invented a machine that made cutting crystals much more precise than traditional manual methods, Daniel Swarovski founded a crystal factory in the town of Wattens in Tyrol, Austria. The initial focus was primarily on crystal for jewelry, home accessories and fashion. In 1965, Swarovski began producing crystal elements for chandeliers (registered as STRASS in 1977). Selling their crystal to other makers for years, Swarovski eventually began making their own lighting. They currently produce contemporary crystal lighting through their own brand and Schonbek, a leading maker of fine crystal chandeliers, which Swarovksi acquired in 2007.
