By Tamsin Crimmens

Following on from London's Design Museum's blockbusting Christian Louboutin retrospective comes a project with a different kind if glamour about it.

Fifteen different architects and designers from around the world, including Maarten Baas, rAndom International, Yves Béhar, Troika and Fredrikson Stallard, have all produced incredible technical installations showcasing different ways that Swarovski crystals can be used in design, from furnishings and a hi-tech chandelier to interactive installations featuring all manner of LED’s and lasers.

Nadja Swarovski, a member of the Swarovski executive board, says, ‘It is an honour that the Design Museum has chosen to collaborate with Swarovski on this forward-thinking exhibition… Our commitment to cutting-edge contemporary design and innovation is driven by our work with these visionaries who push the boundaries of how crystal can be used.’

Digital Crystal is on now until 13 January 2013 at the Design Museum, Shad Thames, London.Admissions: 10.00 - 17.15 daily.
