Jaime Hayon realizes an ultra design carousel for Swarovski

Pop and design, this special carousel takes place in Austria in The Swarovski Kristallwelten , tourist site opened in 1995 by Swarovski ...

So yes, when we say "you" we obviously think of the children around you who may have the chance to ride on this funny carousel, which we hardly dare to know the price when we know it took several million crystals to make it.

Piece of art or real carousel, that's the question when we see the artistic complexity of this human scale production. If each of the sculptures by the Spanish artist Jaime Hayon is unique, added Swarovski crystals makes the whole luxury.

Initially thought with tons of colors, this carousel was finally made in white, black and gold to literally slice with the garden's greenery. Wanting to attract the eye of young visitors, James Hayon played graphic contrasts to bring out the characters of the carousel, sometimes in 2D (on the front of the carousel), sometimes in 3D (sculptures).

With their round and warm shapes - in spite of their tones and absent details - these imaginary creatures are amazing and animated, as in the most classic carousels.

Visible since yesterday in the gardens of the Crystal Worlds, this Jaime Hayon x Swarovski carousel is a must-see attraction.
