Silent Light is a 6-metre-tall tree made from 150,000 Swarovski
crystals. Originally designed by Tord Boontje and Alexander McQueen in 2003, it is now housed in one of Swarovski’s Chambers of Wonder in Kristallwelten.
In a special constructed room where the temperature is -5ºC, real snow falls from the ceiling, covering the room and the tree in fresh snow. The tree stands on a large turntable and slowly rotates, throwing sparkling reflections on everything in the room.
Silent Light was originally commissioned by the Victoria and Albert Museum as a special Christmas tree for the main hall of the museum.
