Chambers of Wonder
These rooms were inspired by the "wunderkammer" of the 16th century, and were made, conceived or inspired by well-known artists, designers and architects, including Brian Eno, Tord Boontje, Niki de Saint Phalle, Jim Whiting, Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, Salvador Dalí and Yayoi Kusama. In addition to the "Chambers of Wonder," "Crystal Worlds" in fact offers a wide range of services and entertainment areas, such as a park, a store and a restaurant. In this photo we can see the entire facility from above.

Crystal Dome 
The "Crystal Dome" is a geodesic-style structure designed inspired by the dome of famous architect Sir Richard Buckminster Fuller. Made of 595 mirrors, it offers a three-dimensional effect that gives the feeling of being inside a crystal. In addition to being equipped with eight "spy" mirrors concealing works of art, the "Crystal Dome" is accompanied by music by Brian Eno. Due to its spectacular nature, this structure is highly coveted as a location for weddings and ceremonies.

Into Lattice Sun - Lee Bul
South Korean artist Lee Bul was inspired by modern architecture, creating a urban, utopian and dramatic landscape. The installation explores the interactions between the visitor and space, using an infinity of crystals and mirrors to give the illusion of ever-changing spatial vastness and depth. The work invites visitors to reflect on their position in space through an ever-changing interplay of facets and reflections, intensified by a symbolic bridge leading through this fascinating landscape.

Transparent opacity - Arik Levy
"Transparent Opacity" by Arik Levy is a work of art that celebrates the variety of crystal. The title itself highlights the two seemingly contradictory qualities: transparency and impenetrability. The room's installation plays with a wide range of materials, from sheets of glass, marble and steel to synthetic 3D prints, creating an interplay of shapes and sizes. This interaction becomes extremely dynamic in "Interactive Arena", which captures and reflects every movement.

Eden Chamber of Wonder - Fredrikson Stallard
"Eden Chamber of Wonder" is an installation that evokes the primal force of nature, particularly the forest. But this is no ordinary forest, but rather an ancient fantasy world, in which the visitor is greeted by a waterfall and its roar, reflected from the walls. The path winds through polished brass structures, reflecting like mirrors, that seem to go on forever. To complete the installation, the largest Swarovski gems ever produced sprout, symbols of the magnificence of nature and the origins of life.
