Witnessing the dialogue between the personalities and cultures of students from fifteen different nationalities, the epilogue of this six-month workshop highlights the contemporary potential of Baccarat's heritage. By pushing each concept as far as possible and mischievously underlining the noble and mysterious forces of crystal, the six final projects explore the uses, materials, and notions of scale and aesthetics inherent in the object.
With humour and transgression, the "Vase-O-Rama" collection reveals creations that celebrate Baccarat's know-how.
Aurélie Mathieu & Philippe Karrer
A fluted vase cut into layers borrowing from the codes of the construction game.
TARTAN, CHEVRON & HARLEQUIN
Ana Varela & David Luraschi
Set of three vases reinterpreting the textile motifs of tartan, chevron and argyle.
Based on the exquisite cadaver principle, this series of three vases uses various combinations of designs and cut-outs from the factory's archives.
The horizontal cut-outs of the vase allow the piece to be held at an angle while resting on a base.
The vase has an integrated harness that can be used as a backpack.
