Imperial prestige in delicate workmanship - „Design by ORION: KATHARINA“ carries you off to the times of the royal courts with svelte and elegant visuals.

Empress Catherine II. of Russia (1762-96) was the only female ruler upon whom history bestowed the surname “the Great”. She ascended to the throne by a coup against her own husband, reformed the Russian Empire, applied attention to the movement of Enlightenment by inviting leading European philosophers to her court. During her rule the Tsarist Empire experienced a period of prosperity.

Reminiscing of these palatial times ORION-Designers created “KATHARINA”. This classic crystal series had a tall construction base and with its delicate form is particularly adequate for spacious buildings. In contrast to the “MARIA THERESIA”-chandeliers „Design by ORION: KATHARINA“ does not have glass bars over the arms. Their slimline structure lets the frame appear even lighter.

As a nod to the imperial inspiration, “KATHARINA” has a crown-like superstructure at the top of the chandelier – as if it too had been crowned.

The metal parts are manufactured in solid brass; alternate finishes are 24-carat gold- or chrome-plated. The standard version of „Design by ORION: KATHARINA“ is fitted with clear "Spectra® Swarovski® Crystals". On request colored crystal can be fitted.
