Prologue Fredrikson Stallard

June 26, 2014

Prologue by Fredrikson Stallard for Swarovski

Swarovski is pleased to present a new installation by London-based designers Fredrikson Stallard, to coincide with Art Basel in Hong Kong. Entitled Prologue, the monumental piece will make its international debut at “The Former Hollywood Road Police Married Quarters” (PMQ).

Described by the avant-garde designers as “a representation of new beginnings, and also a more abstract symbol of life and rebirth,” the outdoor sculpture holds 8,000 Swarovski crystals and is 4m in height. 

The design transmits light from its environment throughout the day.

Recent examples of their innovative works in Asia Pacific include collaborations with prestigious Beijing based Architect Ma Yansong and Chinese designers Liu Feng, Naihan Li, Shi Jianmin, Song Tao and Zheng Delong. These works contribute to a series of major commissions within Swarovski Digital Crystal, an exhibition which debuted at the Design Museum, London – exploring the concept of memory in the fast-developing digital age.

Patrik Fredrikson and Ian Stallard formed their design partnership in 1995 and have become leading exponents of British avant-garde design. “Prologue” is the latest collaborative work between Swarovski and the designers, and the first time both parties have presented their work in Hong Kong.
