On the occasion of
'Salone del Mobile', Baccarat invited its visitors to experience its latest
design collections at Palazzo Morando, in Milan.
Guests were immersed
in different universes especially crafted to sublimate the crystal pieces
imagined by designers such as Patricia Urquiola and Philippe Starck.
signs her first collaboration with Baccarat, introducing the Variations, a collection of vases and
stemware.Hovering between sophisticated object and
sculpture, to be interpreted together or individually, The Variations comprises a series of highly colourful pieces where
glass-cutting principles and Baccarat savoir-faire have been reinvented.
Deeply feminine with its unlikely colour
associations, playful and changing in its combinatory potential, Variations rings the changes on an art
de vivre as imagined by Patricia Urquiola.
Featuring multiple, stackable forms in clear or
coloured crystal, the Variations
collection of stemware and vases is a series of surprises. Pleated, smooth, or
cut, in different diameters and heights, the bowls focus attention on the
solid, tactile nature of each base.
by acid colour hues, the glasses exude a relaxed, neo-pop vibe, while each
vase, radiating a pale, soft halo, is almost sculptural in effect, magnified by
a novel glass-cutting technique.
The new Crystal
Dream furniture collection takes a fresh look at the unashamed luxury of
black crystal, with two new creations from the unique genius of Philippe
Starck: the Crystal Supper Black
table and the Small Crystal Supper Black
Collections available by Fall 2012.
