Jaime Hayon designs carousel for Swarovski

The Spanish designer Jaime Hayon, guest of honor during the 2008 INTERIEUR Biennale, created a striking black, white and gold carousel for Swarovski's Kristallwelten, the sculpture garden and visitor center in the Tyrolean Alps. Thanks to the geometric shapes, masks and playful drawings, the installation bears a clear Hayon stamp. You don't take a seat on a horse, but in one of the frivolous sculptures: 'For me, the carousel looks like a moving museum,' Hayon explains. 'I started with sketches and figures, and ended with moving sculptures that can be seen as works of art.’

A ride on the carousel is possible until August 31st. All information on the parc can be found on the site of Kristallwelten
