The Design Museum is presenting Crystal Palace, a collection of contemporary chandeliers, from 27 September to 5 January. Developed for Swarovski by Ilse Crawford, the collection is intended to encourage young designers to re-invent the chandelier. Crystal Palace features designs commissioned from Hella Jongerius, Tord Boontje and Georg Baldele. London-based product and lighting designer Baldele has created Glitter Box; glass designer Boontje’s creation is called Blossom and is modelled on blossom sprigs with crystal leaves and petals; and Jongerious’ Crystal Frock (pictured) is a replica ball gown made from rose pink crystals.
