StarWorld Macau

VIP Upgrades – The Diamond Light

illumination Physics was able to make a valuable contribution to the refurbishment of one of Macau’s most successful post-hand-over properties - Star World.


First opened during the October Golden Week of 2006, Star World was among the first of the modern era gaming resorts. Star World, part of the highly successful local Galaxy Entertainment Group, has recently implemented major internal refurbishments and illumination Physics created a novel new luminaire especially for this project.


Working with Shop 12, the in-house lighting design company for Steelman and Partners, the idea for an entirely new type of downlight emerged. It would be mounted in the ceiling like a conventional downlight but would be much smaller. The lens would take the form of a round cut diamond which would glow from within. The intention was to view the sparkle effect directly as well as the indirect crystalline reflections projected onto the ceiling, surrounding the ‘Diamond Light’.


The Diamond Light luminaire is designed to create a spectacle overt sparkling ceiling. It is intended for the hotel, resort and gaming industry as an adaptable lighting effect available in the full range of colour temperatures or indeed, colour LEDs.
