The best news is that the entire collection is available right on time for this summer 2018.
Now, let’s take a closer look at the behind-the-scenes part: the design process.
Infinite Aura was born from the partnership between Swarovski Lighting established and IDEO, an award-winning, global design and innovation consultancy. For three weeks, the two companies joined forces to reimagine the chandelier in new and surprising ways. During the process, they began to focus on how to bring emotion and relevance to everyday lighting for the consumer, both in terms of a lighting fixture and technology.
They were especially curious about new form factors, different light effects, and how technology could integrate into the chandelier in a way that could be meaningful to consumers without competing with pure technology products and brands.
Deeply faceted crystal pieces were incorporated into the fixture in a way that epitomizes Swarovski’s “Mastery of Light + Crystal” by precisely curating and owning a specific light spectrum that suits the consumer lifestyle and creates holistic, impeccable lighting experiences over moments throughout a day.
The design process began by reducing the chandelier to its essence – a light source – that then evolved into the final fixture which celebrates crystal through a refined chandelier design. Even when off, the chandelier is a beautiful object on display and an art piece that acts as a grounding element to a space.
Because of crystal’s refraction and play against LED, light is used in an entirely new way, moving from a linear, manually activated spectrum to a non-linear user journey through the development of the Swarovski Infinite Control App. The consumer controls light to be more relevant to their mood, environment and space, finding harmony through a unique technology inspired by nature.
