Digital Crystal: Swarovski at London’s Design Museum

[wide][/wide]Over the past decade Swarovski’s design and architecture commissions have served as an important experimental platform for leading figures in design to conceptualise, develop and share their most radical ideas. A collaboration between the Design Museum and Swarovski that invites designers to look at ways in which we might recover a lost connection with objects in the digital age while exploring the changing nature of memory.

The result is 15 unique installations giving you a glimpse of the future of memory.
Designers involved in Swarovski commissions from the past decade, including Ron Arad, Paul Cocksedge and Yves Béhar, have been asked to rework existing pieces in response to the brief. There are also exhibits by a new generation of designers.

Until January 13 2013.
