Fredrikson Stallard for Swarovski, Belvedere Vienna, until 05 November 2016
As part of the Vienna Design Week 2016, the Belvedere, in collaboration with Swarovski, is showing the large installation Prologue by the British designer duo Fredrikson Stallard. Prologue is a circular, standing sculpture weighing 1.2 tons. It comprises over 8,000 Swarovski amber crystal droplets, held within a patinated steel frame measuring four metres in diameter. The ring symbolizes the sun, while the infinity of the circle represents new beginnings and is an abstract allusion to life and rebirth.
