A ray of light for Oman!

Austrian lighting manufacturer Kny Design receives a prestigious order to produce and install one of the largest chandeliers in the world in the mosque in Nizwa.

Now in its third generation, the family-run company Kny Design has been operating successfully for 60 years and develops innovative solutions in lighting design. The high-tech niche player furnishes public buildings, churches, mosques and conference centres, as well as casinos, ships and hotels, with its superior specialist designs, which range from classic chandeliers and glass façades to light sculptures crafted from metal. Exporting 70% of its products, Kny Design draws its inspiration from its international markets that seek individual object design.

In Oman, the company is responsible for producing and installing a lavish central chandelier in the mosque in Nizwa. The contract is worth nearly three quarters of a million euros. This marks the second colossal chandelier that Kny Design has produced for Oman. Previously, the Al Ameen mosque in Muscat was endowed with one of the five biggest chandeliers that have ever been made, with a total weight of 6.5 tonnes, a body height of almost eleven metres and 67,000 sparkling Swarovski crystals. But even these staggering dimensions will be surpassed by the new chandelier in Nizwa!
