News Swarovski Designers of the Future Award
The designers have developed innovative, bold and very different solutions, going well beyond the aesthetic and decorative characteristics of crystal.
Maria Cristina Didero, Domus

June 2018 - For the fourth year running, the Swarovski Designers of the Future Award was been bestowed upon three emerging designers as part of Swarovski’s ongoing support of emerging talent during Design Miami/ Basel.

Selected by a jury of leading figures in the design world, the award was presented to Frank Kolkman, Study O Portable and Yosuke Ushigome of Takram, who were commissioned to create bold, new works that respond to the contemporary need for ‘smart living’, while exploiting the scientific and aesthetic properties of crystal.

To realize their vision, the designers worked closely with Swarovski’s engineers and master cutters to explore how craftsmanship, cutting-edge technology and visionary design can result in imaginative works that will shape future living. Each designer presented a commission that reflected their individual field of design, with the final works being installed together in one complete environment at Design Miami/ Basel, bringing to life an interesting and engaging mix of formal and technological expressions. The final works included ‘Dream Machine’ by Frank Kolkman, that used neuroscience and crystal technology to ease our minds, ‘Slanted Tiles’ by Study O Portable; a series of architectural surfaces that explores the more analogue and emotional properties of crystal and light, and ‘Home Shrine’ by Yosuke Ushigome, that seeks to personalize the relationship between man and technology.
