PARIS, Jan 17, 2009 / FW/ — Swarovski Crystal Palace is proud to exhibit an exclusive selection of designer collaborations, including new furniture by Tord Boontje, at this year’s Maison & Objet Salon taking place in Paris from 23-27 January 2009.
Capturing the ethereal quality of crystals in contemporary statements of brilliance, designers D.B. Kim, Diller Scofidio & Renfro, Fabien Baron, Fredrikson Stallard, Georg Baldele, Jaime Hayón, Michael Anatassiades, Tokujin Yoshioka, Tom Dixon, Tord Boontje, and Vincent Van Duysen will be presenting their innovative creations in a unique setting.
The exhibit will showcase ‘Scénes d’intérieur Designer 2009’ Vincent Van Duysen’s eye-catching ‘Cascade’; an opulent 3 metre chandelier with cascading drops of Swarovski crystals, echoing the tempestuous flow of a waterfall.
In addition, the highly innovative designer Tord Boontje will launch the first ever furniture Crystal Ice range for Swarovski Crystal Palace. Following the success of his intricate ‘Ice Branch’, and using a similar technique of densely wrapped crystals, these three designs give an illusion of floating icicles encased in a striking minimal structure.
Visit the Swarovski Crystal Palace at Maison & Objet Salon 2009 at the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre, situated 25 minutes from the centre of Paris, 5 minutes from the TGV train station and 3 km from Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport.
