Swarovski’s name has been synonymous with the most prestigious crystal elements for chandeliers since 1895. Their unique machine cutting techniques maximise the optic brilliance and enhance the sparkle of crystal, regardless of design, from modern crystal art pieces to traditional chandeliers, ceiling lights and wall sconces. Originally these crystal elements were sort after by all the leading chandelier manufacturers but Swarovski revolutionised the industry when they released a new age of high-quality and precision-cut crystal, exploding with colour, the likes of which had never been seen before.
In 2007, iconic crystal chandelier manufacturer Schonbek, which was founded in 1870, joined forces with Swarovksi, bringing the two companies under the one roof. Swarovski’s pioneering spirit and innovative techniques integrated seamlessly with the expertise of Schonbek in designing crystal heritage chandeliers, wrought iron crystal chandeliers, renaissance crystal chandeliers, contemporary crystal lighting fixtures and crystal wall brackets and sconces. Schonbek chandeliers can be found all over the world, in Grand Palaces including Buckingham Palace and other important historical buildings such as the White House. Swarovski adorned crystal chandeliers are considered by many to be an heirloom quality investment and a timeless artpiece. Over the years Swarovski’s designers have proven that crystal is able to adapt to trends whether it be jewellery, crystal lighting fixtures or figurines with crystal available in several ranges including Crystals from Swarovski (S) Spectra Crystal (A) Heritage (H) and Rock Crystal (R).
Today, Swarovski is the undisputed world leader in quality crystal. Whilst still producing cut crystal for traditional light fittings, Swarovski has developed a range of beautifully elusive, modern luminaires using state of the art lighting technologies – a true display of their ability to create and innovate while uniting the future with the past. The modern created with the tradition of the classic. Fashioned by renowned designers, Swarovski Lighting offers an abundance of individual and creative possibilities with a powerful contemporary aesthetic.
