The crystal bowls and vases of the Objectif collection from Baccarat are named after the French word for “camera lens”. Indeed the design simulates the lens opening mid-snapshot, as the camera mechanisms are regulating the amount of light let in, determining whether an image is dark or light. Whether or not you happen to be a photography aficionado, this collection has an exciting sense of gathering momentum. The visual effect is that of a whirlpool of luminosity, a rush of energy anchored in clear crystal. Hand made in France. Crystal Classics is an authorized online boutique of Baccarat Crystal.
Baccarat Crystal has, from the beginning, affixed its signature on strong works illustrating all the facets of artistic craftsmanship and covering a vast repertoire of inspiration.
In 1764 King Louis XV of France gave Bishop Montmorency-Laval of Metz permission to found a glassworks in the village of Baccarat located in Lorraine in eastern France.
The creations of great artists inspired by the magic of crystal are all magnificent stones brought together into building the Art de Vivre collection.
This is how Baccarat perpetuates the great French tradition of a cosmopolitan art of living. Envisioned by Philippe Starck, the Baccarat House in Paris, home to the brand's headquarters, is a meeting place for its most beautiful creations and one of its most beautiful manifestations.
