  • Catalogue Essay

    “Looking at crystal I recognize the floral shapes in the crystal. I like the idea of bringing more emotional qualities to the crystal. I thought of blossom branches for my chandelier design, and the crystal resembles these very well.”
    -Tord Boontje, Swarovski Crystal Palace, p. 2

    This "Blossom" chandelier is unique in its color. It is the only one ever made in clear, as opposed to colored, crystal combined with crystal AB coating and was a special commission for a London interior.
