INNOVATION AND DESIGN EVOLVE IN MILAN

At the core of Atelier Swarovski is a drive to present covetable, innovative objects for the home through collaborations with the world’s leading luminaries in design and architecture. Launched in 2016 at Salone del Mobile in Milan, crystalline forms phrased as vases, centerpieces, and objets d’art culminated in a debut collection whose ultimate purpose was to reimagine home décor. Each year Atelier Swarovski celebrates a new home collection with a presentation the annual event in Milan with a series developed to enhance and balance the brand’s existing range.

From the late legend Zaha Hadid to functionality-focused Tomás Alonso, Atelier Swarovski works directly with designers to translate its forward-thinking design DNA and technical expertise into collections of covetable Swarovski crystal table top objects and home accessories. The offerings range from pieces which embrace Swarovski crystal as a design medium in its own right to objets d’art which juxtapose crystal with other materials such as resin, metals, marble and Corian. Atelier Swarovski’s home collections are a vivid reminder of the infinite creative possibilities of crystal in design —and leverages the company’s most recent innovations. The collections use technologies developed by Swarovski’s experts, including crystal printing and the revolutionary Wave Cut technique.

For 2017, the collections available employ technologies developed by Swarovski’s experts in conjunction with the exuberant intelligence and originality of the industry’s greatest minds. German-Icelandic duo Studio Brynjar and Veronika have created a series of colorful, abstract paperweights for their collection based on their 2016 Designers of the Future installation. This reimagining of traditionally simple home décor is also articulated within NYC architect Andre Kikoski’s crystalline boxes, and candleholders, in addition to American interiors icon Barbara Barry’s multi-purpose vases and candleholders. Aldo Bakker’s range of playful crystal objects include playful bottle stoppers and paperweight magnifiers while Tomás Alonso’s signature color play is so inventively reimagined in a collection of contemporary trays.

Swarovski has been a champion of design, both in the form of installations, sculptures and artistic objects for nearly a century, as well as the more ephemeral decorative arts. The brand’s ultimate expression—Atelier Swarovski—launched in 2007 with a fashion jewelry line. New home collections are currently available for purchase.
