Tokujin Yoshioka’s ‘Wings of Sparkle’ stand design for crystal brand Swarovski at Baselworld 2013, the international watch trade show, featured a wall with hexagonal reflectors and strategically placed blinking lights within them that made the wall appear to “sparkle”.

 

 

 

For the interior, “The crystal walls consisting of a total of 34,000 cut crystals used the same geometric, hexagonal shape as per the [exterior] facade reflector and was produced by Swarovski, Wattens in Austria.” says Yoshioka.

“In the interior the stand is furnished with 40 freestanding showcases … inspiration for the design of the showcase comes from the shape of the crystal structure and realized consistently in the hexagon shape of different heights.”
