SHARP MEMORY: Swarovski’s crystal elements are a familiar sight during London Fashion Week, when the house works with a number of the city’s designers to lend their creations added sparkle. But this season, Swarovski will be making a splash at London’s Design Museum, too.
With the museum, Swarovski has staged “Digital Crystal: Swarovski at the Design Museum,” for which the house commissioned designers to create installations that explore the future of memory in the digital age. The 14 pieces on show include Ron Arad’s “Lolita,” a crystal chandelier that displays text messages that Arad originally created for the house in 2004, and Dutch designer Maarten Baas’ piece — a house with a chimney that emits a “thought cloud” — that aims to celebrate human thought.
The show opens today and runs through Jan. 13.
