The French luxury brand, recognized for its high-end and exclusive crystal products since 1764, found in the Illinois-born Abloh a collaborative and imaginative partner for the exposition.

The collection is made of a lighting unit, a center table unit and glasses. All pieces are numbered and have exclusively been “made to order” through the brand. Each piece was made in France, at the Baccarat manufacture in the Lorraine region.

“Working with Virgil has been an amazing experience for our artisans at Baccarat. From our first meeting, Virgil had crystal clear in mind and could imagine how these geometrical shapes would elegantly dance together suspended from a ceiling and sitting on a table. Our people in the Baccarat’s ateliers without any hesitation interpreted his vision and sketches relentlessly. Their unique skills and passion for perfection resulted in this amazing piece of art, says Daniela Riccardi, Global CEO of Baccarat.  

“In any creative endeavors, I am interested in collaborating with the best in class. For me Baccarat represents the expression of the dynamism of crystal through history and today. The ‘crystal clear’ line of objects is an extension of my art practice, expertly realized by the artisans of Baccarat,” says Abloh.
