Eyal Burstein’s thought provoking conceptual work for Design Miami/Basel stands out for its ability to shed new light on the divide between design and art. The collection features a Plexiglass bench, along with three cast-concrete and metal chairs. All design pieces, part of which are handmade art and part machine product design, have been greatly influenced by the classic Swarovski Chaton-cut crystal’s shape.
Burstein’s states, “Working with Swarovski Crystal Palace has provided new horizons for me to explore and has been a fertile ground for a free flow of ideas. In creating Beta I’ve had the opportunity to continue challenging the bureaucracy that distinguishes between art and design, compromising the opportunities for innovation.”
