For more than 50 years, Cristallux has been developing, designing, manufacturing and installing exclusive decorative lighting fixtures.
Cristallux designs, manufactures and installs decorative lighting for the hotel industry.
With more than 50 years of experience, we understand how to provide the quality and specific requirements necessary to meet safety regulations and customer requests for hotel facilities.
The strength of our business lies in understanding the thoughts and wishes of our clients and implementing them in the planning, development, design, budgeting and manufacturing of our products.
Bespoke project lighting for the hotel industry
Through our mould, metal, wood and paint shop, we offer a bespoke full-service package to our clients.
We consult with our customers from the design to the manufacturing processes to ensure client satisfaction.
High-quality CAD / CAM design
Cristallux’s factory in The Black Forest, Germany, is equipped with latest computer-aided design (CAD) / computer-aided manufacture (CAM) design technology, including three-dimensional (3D) computer numerical control (CNC) cutting machinery and mould shops.
This advanced production facility allows for the economical manufacturing of both single units and a large series of products.
Every product leaves our factory with a ‘Made in Germany’ quality seal and comes with a global warranty.
Recyclable materials for hotel lighting and fixtures
Cristallux has developed its fully recyclable Alamar material in-house for project lighting. It is produced without any waste as cut-offs are broken down into their granular base form and used in the next production cycle. Clients can also return their unwanted fixtures for recycling.
Alamar is a durable alternative to natural materials, including marble, stone and glass, which can be too expensive and fragile for larger projects and fixtures. It comes with many benefits while giving the appearance and texture of marble or crystal glass.
As Cristallux designs and manufactures Alamar batches from scratch, its texture and colour can be customised according to the client’s designs.
On-site light fixture installation
We provide on-site installation of our lighting fixtures. Our in-house experts are involved throughout the manufacturing process and will carry out the installation to maintain high standards and ensure customer satisfaction.
Cristallux was founded by Wolfgang Arnold in 1963 and sold to Norddeutsche Seekabelwerke (NSW) in 1979. In 1988, Horst Schindler took over the business before passing it to Thomas and Heike Schindler in 1998.
Since 2019, Sarah and Olaf Schindler have been the third generation of the Schindler family involved in Cristallux. They have strengthened existing relationships, as well as building new ones, with interior fitting companies, architects and designers to help serve clients in the hospitality industry. They have also introduced new products and invested in the facility to secure a stable position in the international lighting market.
Alternative materials are becoming more and more important in today's building processes, not only in terms of cost efficiency but also durability and recyclability in order to reduce waste.
