The collaboration between Zaha Hadid and Swarovski Crystal Palace was an opportunity to challenge preconceived notions of lighting design on a large-scale. Drawing inspiration from self-organising systems and nanotechnology, the project redefines the chandelier, transforming it from a passive object merely hung from the ceiling to a reflective light source that forcefully engages with the space.
Material: Swarovski Crystal, Aluminium, SS Cabling, Copper wire, Microprinted LEDs.
