On tiles and other modules

Instead of creating lighting fixtures that are as baroque as the
crystals themselves, Fredrikson Stallard realized that the eccentric
shapes of their chandelier components would be shown off to their best
effect in a rigorously geometrical matrix. The outcome is Voltaire, a
series of suspended linear forms that make astonishing accent pieces
and also work beautifully to light irregular modern spaces.
Fredrikson Stallard’s Glaciarium collection is inspired by Swarovski’s complex crystal production techniques and the way crystal behaves in its raw state. The duo realized that the eccentric forms of their bespoke components would be displayed to their best advantage using a rigorously geometrical matrix - either strictly linear or perfectly circular. This sense of contrast is heightened by the use of industrial steel in the housing for the lights: the mounting is designed so that, just like a traditional chandelier, the crystal components can face different directions, swaying with each breeze or movement and bringing life to the play of refraction.
To create the Glaciarium collection, Fredrikson Stallard developed the components from scratch, evoking the natural qualities of crystal as a material - the way it splinters into shards, the ripples that articulate its surface.
