The Design Museum and Swarovski come together to challenge designers and explore the future of memory in the fast developing digital age. Some of Swarovskis previous commissions and a new generation of designers come together to examine the changing nature of our relationship with objects and even with time during this exhibition on now and carrying through until the 13th Jan uary. Digital Crystal asks some of the most exciting talents in contemporary creativity to explore ways in which we can recover that lost connection we have with things, the result is 15 unique installations giving you a glimpse of the future memory

Over the past decade Swarovski’s design and architecture commissions have served as an important experimental platform for leading figures in design to conceptualise, develop and share their most radical ideas.

Also as an interactive feature the public can take part in the exhibition from anywhere in the world by tweeting using #digitalcrystal or texting +44 (0)7860 021492 and your message will appear in the exhibition on 1000 LEDs hidden in the crystals of Ron Arad’s Lolita chandelier.
