Launching an exciting creative collaboration between Swarovski and U.S. lighting specialist Hubbardton Forge, a new collection entitled Synchronicity by Hubbardton Forge was unveiled at Lightovation: Dallas International Lighting Show in Texas on January 18, 2017.
Hubbardton Forge began as a story of inspiration and design with its handcrafted art created from fire and steel. They’ve now teamed up with Swarovski Architecture & Lighting to create Synchronicity. The designs are a delicate blend of creativity and glamour. Crystals and steel, forged in fire and combined in unexpected ways.
Famed for sinuous arcs of hand-forged steel, their sculptural artistry and superb craftsmanship made Hubbardton Forge the ideal partner to debut Swarovski’s unique Wave Cut crystals.
Synchronicity consists of a series of ten stunning designs featuring Crystals by Swarovski, with each Swarovski crystal lighting design showcasing the geometric precision of the innovative curved forms as though it’s a fine jewelry setting. Each crystal, intentionally placed to inspire and arouse the senses, are combined with graceful curves of steel and glittering Swarovski Crystal Lighting.
Concept development with the master metal smiths began a year ago, focusing on groundbreaking ways to showcase the extraordinary concave and convex curves produced by the new crystal-cutting technology.
The results include the steel-embraced Courbé and Courbé Duet pendants and Hubbardton Forge sconce; the crown of leaves and stems of the Gaia pendant, entwining Oval Pear crystals in steel; the striking Artemis pendant that grasps distinctive Boomerang crystals; the Terra pendant, featuring webs of silk thread and steel rods to evoke geological lines; the Rhapsody pendant and sconce, which contrast cone-shaped crystals with ribbons of steel; and the circular Aria pendants lined with Swarovski crystal fabric in Comet Argent Light.
