Random Crystals

Designing with unusual materials such as Swarovski's crystals can be a tricky task, specially if you want to propose more than ornamental or conceptual project.

Swedish design group Front approached the problem with a simple yet very interesting solution; they combined the art of hand blown glass with the precision cut crystals, while in the process of blowing a series of glass vases the liquid glass get in contact with a bunch of Swarovski crystals which remain attached and define the final shape of each vase.

    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck. There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
