Crytsal Iris by Swarovski by Fredrikson & Stallard

July 14th, 2011 by retail design blog

Swarovski Crystal Palace and Fredrikson Stallard have worked together to create a stunning new collection, called Iris, a unique interpretation of the human eye. This work is displayed in the ongoing Design Miami/Basel, which runs from 13th June to 18th June 2011.

Iris consists of four separate pieces combining Swarovski crystal and different metal treatments, from gold leaf to rust, that dramatically represent the allure of the human eye. Each piece is 1.5 metres in diameter and contains over six hundred hand-cut crystals producing an imposing yet captivating presence that immediately draws the viewer in.

Patrik Fredrikson and Ian Stallard explain:
“The eye has always been significant since prehistoric times as a representation of gods or of the soul. We have taken the physical qualities of Swarovski crystals and translated these into the psychological realm of how we as humans observe, perceive and reflect our surroundings. In this way they act as a link between ourselves and the objects, which in turn observe us back.”
