Executive Board Member & Head of Corporate Branding and Communications
Executive board member, Nadja Swarovski, tells Professional Jeweller: “A commitment to sustainability and positive social impact has been in the DNA of Swarovski since my great-great-grandfather founded the company in 1895. In striving to use responsibly sourced materials we are following our own cultural values, and we are committed to driving positive change within our industry — inspiring the designers we work with to embrace sustainability through education and material support. The company’s current crystal collections feature Swarovski Advanced Crystal, the world’s first lead-free crystal, which is produced responsibly, with 1/3 of the energy from renewables and 70% of the water use met through recycled sources".
Nadja Swarovski, Chair & Creative Director of Atelier Swarovski, commented: “We are delighted to present our latest Atelier Swarovski Home collections at Downtown Design Dubai, with a range of pieces which celebrate the artistry and craftsmanship of our master cutters and the incredible creative vision of our design collaborators. This year we are pleased to showcase the inspirational work of Tomás Alonso and Patricia Urquiola, two of Spain’s leading design practitioners and global talents, as well as a stunning new collaboration with Austrian fine glassmakers Lobmeyr.”
