Swarovski, the world’s leading manufacturer of precision cut crystal, will present a new dramatic concept at its exhibition of Swarovski Crystal Palace at Via Savona 56, in the Zona Tortona district of Milan in 16-21 April.

A carefully-selected group of creators have been invited to design a landscape or atmosphere, which will include items of lighting, furniture and interior design elements.

The designers will work with the unique medium of Swarovski crystal, pushing the boundaries to create their own contemporary interpretations of furniture, lighting and design. Their inspirations will come from many varied sources, amongst them the natural world, the visual arts and high technology.

The results will be dramatic, captivating and will give new expression and meaning to lighting and design. Swarovski Crystal Palace is now in its seventh year.

There will be installations by renowned international designers including:

Fredrikson Stallard

Tokujin Yoshioka

Zaha Hadid

Marcel Wanders

Arne Quinze

Piero Lissoni

Paul Cocksedge
