"The Constellation chandelier blooms with excitement. Like a bouquet of many tiny ﬂowers, its lights settle across space like a star shower. Think of Queen Anneʼs Lace, think of ﬁreworks, think of a ﬁeld of wild ﬂowers..."
"The Constellation is familiar, everyone has their own story, their own relationship to the corona. It inspires dreams of the future, and fond memories of the past.
The Constellation also represents the ﬁrst wave of decorative LED lighting for the home and retail environment. Traditionally, LED lighting has had a lot of success in safety devices, industrial uses, and consumer electronics. Todayʼs white LEDs are now able to emit light that is powerful enough for task lighting."
