Entry DescriptionLe Cristal is a conceptual fashion event project located at 555 20th St, in the Pier 70 area of San Francisco. Inspired by giant quartz crystal caves and bioluminescence, Le Cristal aims to treat the audience to a one-of-a-kind psychedelic, illuminating experience like no other. In the reception area, the LED quartz crystals are mounted to the floor with the illusion of protrusion through the surface. The same thing is done in the tunnel which is the main runway area. Other forms of lighting were used in this project such as ceiling lights in the back of house area and track lights in the reception area. There is also an "Insta Moment" located in the corner of the reception acting as an area for visitors to take memorable images, which is inspired by geode crystals. However, the main take-away of the thematic design in this project is the glowing emission that comes from the floor-mounted quartz crystals.
