Atelier Swarovski

Collaborating with the finest creative talents has inspired Swarovski to push crystal to its aesthetic and technical limits over the past 122 years, continuously resulting in unique and innovative interpretations of its signature material.

For the inaugural Atelier Swarovski Home collection, the late Zaha Hadid’s magnificent centerpiece Crista is created from 24-carat gold-plated metal and crystal. Her beautifully expressive design makes use of Swarovski’s innovative wave-cut technology, which allows curved lines to be cut into crystal for the first time, each section taking two hundred hours to carefully precision cut.

Dutch designer Aldo Bakker creates meaning in every facet with his minimalist Crystal Vase collection. The base acts as a shallow water pool and the sides are made of three interconnecting elements—in either full crystal or a combination of faceted marble, onyx, and crystal—allowing the user to feel and play with the way one element fits with another.

The esteemed architect Daniel Libeskind revisits his most iconic buildings for the striking pieces in his championship-size chess set, which sit on a board that features maps of Milan and New York—the two cities where he lives and works. The set is created using materials from the worlds of construction as well as artisan craft, combining concrete and marble with silver and Swarovski crystal.

With these unique homeware collections, crystal reaches new heights of fascination and form, bringing exceptional design and an inspiring play of light into the home. Atelier Swarovski Home, launched in 2016, is a range of covetable home accessories with a strong focus on combining crystal with other materials. Created in collaboration with the world’s leading designers, each collection is a stunning showcase of the art of crystal cutting and design innovation.
