As long term champions of Fredrikson Stallard’s work, Swarovski has invited the design house to create a new collection of home accessories that will set the precedent for the launch of the new brand, Atelier Swarovski Home at the Salone del Mobile, Milan 2016.
Focusing on extravagant centrepieces, vases and bowls, Fredrikson Stallard have designed a collection that applies their knowledge and understanding of Swarovski’s latest crystal technology to the beauty of raw crystal, aligning precision cutting with the materials natural structure.
“The Glaciarium collection expresses traces of process, traces of a chaotic and dynamic transience captured in a moment of stillness through the serenity of Swarovski crystal: a record of a continuous flux that has been frozen in time. We unearth and frame the energy and beauty left by the flows of natural destructive processes, contemplating and recording the arbitrary tracks within this perpetual movement. They are studies of the relationship between natural and synthetic, geometric and organic, analogue and digital, sculptural and industrial, one off and multiple.
This is a collection of functional objects where the context, process and sculptural aesthetics are paramount, as with fine art sculpture. The pieces are a symbiosis between us physically, our vision, the material and the process.”
