Unda , commissioned as Swarovski Designer of the Future

An undulating skin of cast glass and faceted crystal that glows upon human touch. Debuted at DesignMiami / Basel in 2016.


Inspired by the concept of betterment through the beauty and impact of human gesture, the rolling wave surface is made up of glass elements developed by ChoChoMa Studios and Swarovski Touch Crystal. Using new touch-sensitive technology, Unda responds to human contact with glowing illumination.

An interface for crystal drawing, luminous light travels across the crystal surface following the finger’s trail and slowly fades when the human interaction is taken away.

Mineral oxides are melted into the glass castings to using a vocabulary of rock formations, an ode to man’s first interactions with the earth. The installation is composed of approximately 8000 pieces of glass and crystal and measures 6m x 1.6m .

Highlighting the importance of bringing light to people’s lives, the installation presents an awe-inspiring phenomenon by bringing to the concept of Betterment, a tactile and tangible experience.
