1930S MOVIE THEATRE TURNED CASINO
In 2002, the national casino company of Sweden, Casino Cosmopol, opened the country’s fourth and largest casino in Stockholm. The casino’s premises comprise the old premier movie theatre Palladium which has been carefully renovated and restored, where as much as possible from the original décor has remained. The obvious choice of lighting for the casino was crystal chandeliers, and Krebs was contacted and asked to create a look that was similar to the original crystal chandeliers that used to hang in the theatre. Using old photographs of the movie theatre’s facilities, CEO Tomas Krebs designed the custom made crystal chandeliers Saturnus, exclusively designed for Casino Cosmopol. He says: “It is particularly pleasing that Casino Cosmopol chose to let us design the chandeliers for the purpose of fitting into the premises, as opposed to simply ordering standard designs”.
Four large Saturnus-chandeliers hang from the beautiful cassette ceiling above the roulette tables.
The décor of the casino includes 36 crystal chandelier light installations in the same unique and historical style as the rest of the building.
