Located at Fire Station at Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein, Germany, the Vitra installation by Zaha Hadid for Swarovski is a prime example of the "advanced design and manufacturing technologies available today," as explained on the design page.

Consisting of five separate components, the structures feature sharply angled planes with prismatic facets and futuristic style elements weighing 300-500kg. The design reflects the designer's successful experimentation with visualizing complex forms, being described as 'a direct translation of the dynamic two-dimensional lines and planes on the canvas,' where a 2D sketch becomes a substantial structure.

The Prima installation by Zaha Hadid for Swarovski is completed with a highly polished finish made from composite materials which are then covered with a metal coating in a gun-smoke grey finish.
