For the launch of the new brand of luxury accessories "Atelier Swarovski Home", during the Milan Design Week, Piuarch created an installation that involves the public through a journey in a world of mirrors. Each design element is in dialogue with the late neo-classic architecture of the Palazzo Cagnola, including the ceiling frescos and the terrazzo floors. The visitor is invited to a journey into the Atelier Swarovski Home world through a series of installations that engage a game of reflections between the objects and the space, through reflective ribbons, tables with mirrored surface and a macro object that acts as a teleidoscope.

The original beauty of the fresco on the ceiling becomes the background image of the Swarovski’s collection through the reflective surface of the tables
The most valuable piece of the collection is enhanced by continuous reflection of the wall and of the ceiling on which is reproduced a fresco of the Palazzo.
The teleidoscope creates a game of reflections with the frescoed ceiling, it remembers the reflections of the crystal of the Swarovski’s collection
