Daniel Swarovski, the incredibly inventive visionary founder of Swarovski, invented a revolutionary machine that cuts crystals more precisely than existing manual methods and founded Swarovski in 1895.

Since then, Swarovski has been in the forefront of innovation from creating sew-on crystal ribbons, crystals for chandeliers and lighting, decorative figurines, jewellery, crystal mesh to complete decorative finished lighting product lines with the establishment of Swarovski Lighting in 2011.

Swarovski Lighting inspires cutting-edge architecture, lighting and interiors with Schonbek, a premium lighting brand since 1870 with both contemporary aesthetic lines and classic designs, and Crystal Palace, a collaboration with visionary designers to create unique lighting pieces that transform interiors into spaces of sparkling wonder.



Schonbek® lighting is synonymous with authentic handcrafted crystal chandeliers of the highest heirloom quality. Ranging from classic opulence to contemporary cool, each creation is a radiant masterpiece, characterized by their warm and inviting shapes. Designed and crafted to illuminate for generations to come, a Schonbek piece fills the home with personality and elegance that transcends time.


Swarovski Crystal Palace started in 2002 as a collaboration with designers of various disciplines to reinterpret the rich traditions of the chandelier. Through the years, Swarovski Crystal Palace evolved into a fascinating journey of discovery and new ideas enabling design luminaries to push the boundaries of lighting design through the emotive medium of cut crystal.
