After a suggestion from Ibrahim Farhat, managing director of the boat show, Marek Landa who is the owner of Crystal Caviar brought this marvellous and glistening exhibit over to Dubai. The heart-stopping collection features fantastically curated and valuable art sculptures in Bohemian crystal.

The artist from the Czech Republic started his business six years ago specialising in Bohemian luxury chandeliers and since then the company has grown into a quite celebrated reference, having clients like Bill Clinton, François Mitterrand, Elton John, royal families and Russian oligarchs – “We were two people then, now we are 130, with 7,000 square metres of production space and galleries.”

“Normally, there is no chance for the sculptures to be seen outside the yachts, so this was the perfect chance for visitors to realise one of the most beautiful of arts. This is the first time a gallery is displaying marine-inspired art and it’s a fantastic start. We have a very serious enquiry from a GCC royal family for 56 pieces. Next year, while VIPs will, of course, be the main audience, we aim to open up part of the exhibition to other show visitors.” – Marek Landa
