"I WANTED THE PIECE TO CONVEY SWAROVSKI’S ETHOS NOT JUST THROUGH ITS DESIGN, BUT THROUGH MATERIALITY"
— ZAHA HADID
Hadid's collaborations with Swarovski date back to 2007 with projects ranging from spiraling light installations (Crystal Palace, Salone del Mobile 2008) to the sculptural jewelry collection ‘Glace’ (Atelier Swarovski 2010).
For her collaboration with Atelier Swarovski Home, ‘Crista’, Hadid debuted a collection of imposing centerpieces in crystal and metal. The design is inspired by the crystallization process that occurs in nature and is also notable for its use of Swarovski’s new Wave Cut technology, launched in 2016.
