THE ETERNAL DIAMOND PINE TREE

Platinum Award

The Diamond Pine Tree is created following the lines and shapes of the landscape in “La Défense” business district. The structure will engage the visitors to discover and experience the place with a festive spirit.

The 18 meters- height sculpture is carved and polished as if it were a precious and brilliant Diamond. The originality of this sculpture was inspired by the formation of precious stones and rocks, hence presenting a dynamic innovative and unique shape for a Pine Tree built from multiple triangles.

The Diamond Pine Tree full of sparkles and reflections can also be visited from the inside, allowing the public to walk through, and be amazed with its inner glow.

The Design Process

Castros S. A., a family-owned festive lighting company was founded in Portugal in 1921 and progressively became one of the best in the world.

Its reach quickly went beyond national borders and expanded to new markets and new ways to light things up. Every year, Castros has been developing lighting projects all around the world by providing customized and innovative lighting solutions in France, England, Italy, Brazil, United Arab Emirates, Africa, and Belgium.

The successful and illuminating venture of Castros is internationally recognized, and resulted in several awards, such as Thionville and Milan.

Even after 100 years, the company remains ahead of the market thanks to its innovative spirit, ability to embrace the change and capacity for continuous improvement.

Guided by the values of ethics, quality, sustainability, excellence, and innovation, Castros continuously transmits a well-defined vision and mission to the client. This is only possible thanks to Castros’ highly qualified multidisciplinary professionals with top notch efficiency, allowing the company to offer its clients a service that is tailored to their needs, with a “turnkey” concept that ranges from engineering design to the final installation, complying with the most rigorous installation and monitoring criteria.

 

During the meetings, our team share ideas that originate immersive and striking creations, whether they are icons associated with history or the place, elements that remind us of the imagination, or that awaken us to issues that are on today´s agenda, such as sustainability or globalization, among others, and which in the end are integrated into the festivities as prominent and differentiating elements.

 

An inclusive way of working, where the impossible becomes possible thanks to the swift adaptation to different environments, regardless of the complexity of the projects.

Perhaps one of Castros’ greatest achievements in recent years has been the adoption of a sustainability policy, both in its lighting installations with the integration of first-rate materials, as well as in the company’s facilities incorporating renewable energy solutions and energy-saving systems.
