Parhelia x Swarovski
Miami Beach / USA


An immersive installation designed for Swarovski, explores the relationship between the refractive qualities of crystal, light, nature and architecture. Parhelia, derived from the Greek for "Beside the Sun", incorporates over 1 million Swarovski crystals in an architectural structure nearly 6m high and features crystallized halos that appear to move about the exhibition space. Inside the structure, a geometric design is reflected infinitely in the honeycomb crystal panelling. A skylight allows natural light to interact with the architecture, thereby creating a dynamic visual display that changes from day to night. Parhelia explores the sensory influence of crystal, and their phototropic effect on humans.
