Atelier Swarovski Home’s latest collections for 2020/2021 include works by Barbara Barry, Patricia Urquiola and Peter Pilotto.
Premiered at 2020 Ambiente in February, Atelier Swarovski Home new collection offers extensions to Barbara Barry’s ‘Lumen’ range of multi-purpose vases and tealight holders in vibrant Rosaline and Peridot crystal colorways. Highlights include the ‘Lustre’ kaleidoscopic candleholders by New York-based architect Andre Kikoski, with Swarovski’s iconic Aurora Borealis crystal effect providing dazzling optical illusions.
Atelier Swarovski also presents collections by Spanish designer Tomás Alonso and Milan-based Spanish architect and designer Patricia Urquiola. Tomás Alonso’s ‘Prism’ range is a series of contemporary trays that demonstrate the designer’s signature color play, with jewel-toned eyecatching crystal prisms contrasting with white Italian Carrara marble bases.
Patricia Urquiola’s‘ Brillo’ collection is a series of iridescent containers covered in shimmering bespoke opal crystals meticulously hand-applied at Swarovski’s headquarters in Austria. The containers invite interaction and can be molded into
different forms and shapes.
Atelier Swarovski has collaborated with famed Viennese glassmakers J. & L. Lobmeyr to create the Atelier Swarovski x Lobmeyr ‘Nest’ collection, a series of classic tumblers in green, blue, clear and rosaline colorways, featuring a hand-cut organic geometric pattern.
Additional product for this new season includes celebrated fashion house Peter Pilotto’s ‘Arbol’ collection, a striking series of brass candle holders with structural forms and vibrant color combinations, handmade in Italy and illuminated by precision-cut Swarovski crystals.
Atelier Swarovski also unveiled the ‘Plinth’ collection designed by Kim Thomé, which contrasts clean-edged metal with faceted crystal in a set of eye-catching crystal candleholders. Esteemed Architectural Designer John Pawson’s highly crafted yet seemingly effortless ‘Vessels’ collection is showcased alongside ‘Glaciarium’ by Fredrikson Stallard, a range of homeware pieces which take their inspiration from the fascinating forms of raw crystal.
Alongside the designer collaborations, Atelier Swarovski presents its in-house collections, designed under the creative direction of Nadja Swarovski. ‘Crystal Garden’ is a series of four fragrant candles, each featuring a faceted design and a sparkling crystal that corresponds with its scent. Keepsake boxes from the ‘Rock’ collection feature a mirrored-metal base with a precision-cut Aurora Borealis effect crystal lid, while a candle holder is crafted from pure crystal.
Atelier Swarovski Home collections are available at selected independent retailers worldwide with prices ranging from €100 to €10,000, with bespoke and limited-edition pieces up to €135,000. New pieces will be available from October and the collection will be added to year on year.
Atelier Swarovski’s debut home décor collection was first presented during Milan Design Week 2016, followed by key design fairs internationally including London Design Festival, Vienna Design Week and Maison et Objet. Past collaborators include Daniel Libeskind, Ron Arad, Fredrikson Stallard, Raw Edges, Tord Boontje and Zaha Hadid. The collection includes centerpieces, entertaining and desktop objects created from a mix of materials such as marble, metals and resins together with crystal.
