Giant chandelier from Austria for mosque in Nizwa

A further decorative masterpiece, delivered by Kny Design in the Sultanate of Oman, is also the largest they have ever produced and one of the three largest chandeliers worldwide. „For us, this is proof of the client’s recognition of our hard work, fine craftsmanship and focus on innovation,“ reports CEO Harald Kny.

We are very happy that we were given the honour to furnish the Sultan Qaboos Mosque in Nizwa with our inimitable chandelier.“ The approximately 12 meter high new central chandelier for the mosque in the city of Nizwa was completed after six months construction time in the factory in the Lower Austrian town of Ramingdorf. In mid March, it will be carefully packed into containers and then embark on its voyage to Nizwa by rail and sea.

The installation of the Austrian giant chandelier on site will also be supervised by experts from Kny Design, and will take approximately one month to complete. The extremely complex shapes and forms of the chandelier were made possible by specially developed, in-house casting technologies and unique lighting design. This is yet another area in which the Austrian family-owned company is a technology leader. The size of the order for the collosal chandelier amounts to about 750,000 Euro.

With clients all over the world — from the Arab region, to Russia, China and India — it is important to be able to recognise and take advantage of the strengths and differences of different cultures,“ says Harald Kny about the complexity and potential of his business.
