A digital fairy tale takes the visitor to the last chamber of wonders within the Swarovski Kristallwelten exhibition.
Here is what the story is about: Once upon a time, in a small valley surrounded by huge mountains, a little sparkle was born. A sparkle that grew bigger and bigger over time. Until it became a timeless sparkle! Welcome to a sparkling world, full of wonders and surprises.A world where technology transforms into glamorous fashion, extraordinary jewellery and breathtaking performances.The legendary rise of Swarovski crystal is a success story that spans more than a hundred years. It encompasses lifestyle, fashion, close personal collaboration with artists as well as technological evolution. We focused on the beginning of the success story. We came up with a townhouse divided into different rooms and a laboratory where it all began. Just pick a room and let us take you on an inspiring journey. Travel back in time to the beginnings of a invention that has enriched the world with its brilliance.
Through the magic of pencils and coffee develop we have created this charming scientist who, after numerous iterations and design changes, has done justice to all artistic inputs - from our clients as well as our own.
After the modeling phase and texturing process we hand-animated the walkcycle and all the other animations.
Finally, the scientist was prepared for real-time graphics and landed in the Unreal engine.
Each room in the house stands for a particular episode in the history of the family business or a special piece of jewellery.
In the laboratory, which is furnished in detail, one meets the scientist. He is working hard to fuse physics, chemistry and a touch of magic to exciting new products which expand the fascinating word of crystals … products that brings glamour to the world.
While in the other rooms one encounters magical stories and adventurous figures, the pictures of the cigar room tell us something about the numerous patents that have been applied for over the years. A map illustrates the distribution of the company.
