Monday morning Swarovski revealed its spectacular new exhibition at the Design Museum to the public.
For ten years Swarovski’s design and architecture collaborations have been a coveted opportunity for the world’s leading designers to experiment, develop and share their most radical ideas. A new exhibition at the Design Museum (5 September – 13 January) challenges some of the most exciting talent in contemporary design to explore, in the medium of crystal, the future of memory in the fast developing digital age.
Among the 15 designers who have produced new or especially updated installations for the exhibition are Ron Arad, Maarten Baas, rAndom International, Yves Béhar, Troika and Fredrikson Stallard. The public is invited to share memories and be a part of the exhibition by tweeting or texting Ron Arad’s installation, Lolita, from anywhere in the world – sending messages that travel around the crystal using complex LED technology.
