May 2019: The winners of the Swarovski Designers of the Future Awards have been announced.

The winning projects will be showcased at Design Miami/ Basel from June 11- 16.

Shanghai-born installation artist Juju Wang was selected for the architectural surfaces and building materials category.

Wang’s design, inspired by the importance of water, will explore kinetic architectural facades and how a dynamic pattern can create calmness and depth in a space.

For the Home Décor category, Studio Klarenbeek & Dros have been chosen and will present a series of 3D-printed crystal objects inspired by the reduction of the Arctic icecaps.

A collection of lighting pieces inspired by waterfalls in the Tyrolean mountains that surround Swarovski’s historic headquarters in Wattens, Austria, will be exhibited by Raffe Burrell, winner of the lighting category.
