silent light

At the center of “Silent Light” is the eponymous, spectacularly sparkling crystal tree by designers Tord Boontje and Alexander McQueen, who created it in 2003 for the foyer of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London; it was later moved to Swarovski Kristallwelten (Swarovski Crystal Worlds). Its 150, 000 sparkling Swarovski crystals, which Tord Boontje uses to create a complete Chamber of Wonder, evoke images of a bone-chilling cold and yet heartwarmingly romantic winter wonderland.

Especially in the spring and summer, this miracle world creates a magical contrast to the reality outside the door. The design bears the typical imprimatur of Tord Boontje, in whose work nature plays a starring role.
