Crystal carousel

, July 11, 2019

Spanish designer Jaime Hayon has unveiled his latest artwork - a fairground carousel adorned with black and white Swarovski crystals - which has been installed at the Swarovski Kristallwelten (Swarovski Crystal Worlds), the crystal manufacturer's theme park museum in Austria's Tyrol mountains.

The monochrome design shimmers with 15 million Swarovski crystals across 12 ceiling panels and 16 wall panels and is illuminated with warm lighting to create a dreamlike atmosphere. Hayon was inspired by folklore and fairy tales to create the fantasy characters for the seats. Whimsical faces decorate the roof and the surrounding fence, expressing the joy, surprise and delight that riding a carousel brings.
