Swarovski Creates Customized Crystal Walls Of Light
The jewelry company branches out to create architectural displays that light up the room.
Swarovski continues to create innovative crystal products with its latest architectural material — Honeycomb. The “architectural element” is a combination of lightweight cell cores made of polycarbonate with crystals, LED, and fiber-optic lights that creates a lattice light effect. When light hits the cut crystal, a full range of spectral colors can be viewed, giving off a brilliant light show. The unique effect also gives architects and designers the opportunity to design customized walls and ceilings.
From the website:
A cut crystal, when light falls on it, gleams radiantly in the honeycomb structure on a wall or ceiling. Architecture, light and crystal appear to unite in a fully new way. The extraordinary combination of materials blends completely into the architecture and attracts the glances of the viewers.
The brand inspires designers to create a variety of animated shimmering effects. By mixing colors of light with various colors of crystals, architects and designers change mood lighting from subtle iridescent colors to vibrant hues.
