The interplay of light is what excites us about designing in crystal

— Andre Kikoski

Kikoski received his Master’s degree in Architecture from Harvard University in 1995, where he earned Distinctions for Innovation in Design and Technology. Upon completion of his studies, Andre trained with renowned architectural firms I. M. Pei, Richard Meier, and Peter Eisenman, where he gained the knowledge and experience to eventually open his own practice in 2002. Specializing in planning for cultural institutions and restaurants, as well as product design, his firm has secured 30 design awards and has been featured in 700 publications across 27 countries.

Lustra, Kikoski’s 2017 collection of multi-textured boxes, trays, and modular candle holders for Atelier Swarovski Home has been the architect’s latest endeavor. Employing sculptural design techniques, Kikoski combines muted tones of nickel, copper, and bronze to offset the shining radiance of faceted crystalline components. These dynamic and constructive pieces spark an intriguing visual dialogue between geometry and form. Kikoski first collaborated with Swarovski in 2011, creating ‘ReveaLED’, a range of understated and contemporary chandeliers for Swarovski Lighting.
