Below: The 1970s saw a fascination with fiber optics and Crestworth launched a diverse array of beautiful fibre optic creations. One of many, which is still highly collectable is the stunning spherical design of the Galaxy. Described in vintage catalogue material as "indescribably lovely", Galaxy presents fibre optics in a unique patented dark enclosure, which comes to life with shimmering dots of colour changing light on the surface of the lamp. To add to the beautiful effect, a fan located in the base of the Galaxy, gently sways the internal glass optics to gently move the optics to add to the kinetic lighting effect. These kinetic fibre optic designs added to the diverse range of kinetic lighting invented and manufacted by Crestworth.
