Lighting the way

The Bakalowits® company has more than 160 years’ experience of designing, manufacturing, and installing prestigious, custom-made light fixtures for commercial and residential settings – from opera houses and cruise ships to hotels and private homes. They work with a wide range of renowned designers and artists.

Bakalowits® received an order in February 2010 for the entire lighting scheme for the redesigned Bratislava Castle, a landmark building that has been an imperial residence, army arsenal and barracks and, today, is the seat of government. They produced and designed the whole lighting range in a style that borrowed from the spectacular interiors of the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna. In total, the project included 36 chandeliers in the style of Maria Theresa, candelabra and 60 wall sconces, all of which were manufactured with expert craftsmanship. This prestigious contract was the subject of an international tender process, from which Bakalowits emerged as the winner.
