Swarovski, Milan Design Fair, Italy
Designed for Swarovski, Crystallize is a chandelier made from light and so when there is no light the chandelier disappears. Using lasers and crystals in perfect alignment, the iconic shape of a Swarovski crystal is drawn in mid air. At the heart of the chandelier is a single crystal, which sparkles as it catches the light.
Paul Cocksedge explains: 'I discovered that when you a fire a focused beam of light into a crystal it does something very special. Despite the hypnotic effect caused by focusing the lasers onto the Swarovski crystal at the centre of each diamond shape, this chandelier is in fact an illusion which disappears at the flick of a switch.'
