Swarovski is much more than a top luxury brand and for over a decade creative collaborations have been a coveted opportunity for the world’s leading artists, architects and designers share their most radical ideas using the medium of crystal.
Committed to delivering contemporary architecture, art and design projects, Swarovski’s support of creative visionaries is driven by the recognition that these artists embody the values which the house has upheld for so long: creativity, innovation and experimentation. (PMQ)
Recently and to coincide with Art Basel in Hong Kong, Swarovski presented a new installation by London-based designers Fredrikson Stallard. The design partnership was formed in 1995 and have become leading exponents of British avant-garde design. Entitled Prologue, the monumental piece had make its international debut at “The Former Hollywood Road Police Married Quarters” (PMQ).
The designers described Prologue as “a representation of new beginnings, and also a more abstract symbol of life and rebirth”. The outdoor sculpture holds 8,000 Swarovski crystals and is 4m in heighta and the design transmits light from its environment throughout the day.
Recent examples of their innovative works in Asia Pacific include collaborations with prestigious Beijing based Architect Ma Yansong and Chinese designers Liu Feng, Naihan Li, Shi Jianmin, Song Tao and Zheng Delong.
