Mangroves have been commonly known as green cover along coastlines. Swarovski has redefined this productive and complex ecosystem with its dazzling installation at the 2013 Design Miami.
Swarovski Crystal Palace unveiled the Mangue Groove, conceptualized and created by Guilherme Torres. This innovative architectural installation has been inspired by the Brazilian mangrove forests. In an attempt to raise awareness about water conservation, this collaboration blends beauty with a strong purpose of educating the importance of water conservation to children across the world. Award-winning, Brazilian architect and designer has erected the Mangue Groove installation based on the structure and concept of the Voronoi diagram.
Visitors are able to navigate through the space by walking on certified and reclaimed wooden pathways that will guide them in between the rising mangrove structures. Every evening, at 5 pm, the high-tech installation also allows guests to immerse in a a dynamic mixture of light patterns and sound recordings.
