Swarovski Lighting are known for creating the most beautiful and expensive crystal lighting designs in the world. Turning a timeless material into contemporary designs, they remain at the top of the luxury lighting game.

Combining crystal and light, Swarovski Lighting creations are famed for their sparkling wonder. Intricately crafted, each creation is designed with character in mind. From chandeliers to lamps, whether it’s extravagance or simplicity you’re searching for, Swarovski Lighting designs are peerless in their creation.

To imagine and innovate these ideas Swarovski work with some of the most revered names in the industry. Eternally striving to expand their expertise and consequently improve their techniques, processes, and indeed, their products themselves, Swarovski also work with some of the most revered names in industries beyond.

Born to an Italian father and a Vietnamese mother, Valérie Brusauro is a French artist who signs her work under the pseudonym Diva. The mix of cultures and traditions that played a part in her life are evident in her work.

One of the most revered examples of her work is the Butterfly Of Light. The piece is a butterfly with a fascinating beauty, adorned with a spectacular 9000 crystals from Swarovski in opaque black and gold translucent tones. The chromatic effect the design offers is the result of a powerful contrast between the gold colours of the Stucco Veneziano finishing of the wall.

The subtle dialogue between the light and the material creates a stunning sparkling effect brought to life by an aluminium shape painted and adorned with crystals by hand. The illumination of this design has a very important role to play, creating the optical sensation that the butterfly floats on the wall.

Inspired by nature, beauty, and dreams, the Butterfly Of Light is a one of a kind design, created s a commission for the founders of B5 Living Interiors – The Art Of Living. It can be seen on the main wall of that Villa, located in the French city of Cannes.
