Gemological Institute of America

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the world’s foremost authority on diamonds, colored stones, and pearls, has inaugurated a cutting-edge facility in Dubai. Designed by Orbit Design Studio, this facility represents a significant leap in gemological education and research in the region, underlining GIA's commitment to excellence. KPS fitted the new facility, integrating their laboratory, research, and educational facilities into a state-of-the-art 43,000-square-foot space spread over three adjoining floors. Visually, the key was to convey stability, confidence, and trust, acknowledging GIA’s rich history and cultural traditions while designing a unique facility befitting their status as an industry leader. Central to the facility's success are the lighting and acoustic solutions provided by Acoulite. Acoulite’s goal was to create an inviting and functional environment that also reflects the beauty of gemstones.
