What does a key open for you?
Yoko Ono for Swarovski. An intrepid artist since the 60's with a reputation built on the counter culture, Ono may not seem like an obvious match for Swarovski - the musician/filmaker/performance artist/activist/writer with the world famous maker of exquisite gleaming crystal - but in truth - the common element is 'multi-faceted.'
At first - the key seems like a simple symbol - on a footing with hearts and horseshoes - but in fact, the key is an intensely personal symbol for everyone - unlocking a different meaning for every different person. Ono describes it as 'a key that unlocks the door to the forest - with it's secrets; to the sky - with it's peacefulness; and to the universe, with it's infinity.'
These crystal keys are a triumph of Swarovski's mastery of their medium. The complex - yet simple and subtle form - is a tour de force of the process of shaping crystal. The execution is unparalled. The dynamic tension of crystal vs strength - causes us to pause and imagine what doors we can unlock.
