Baccarat has always been inspired by nature, flora and fauna.
Named Lifelike, Baccarat last exhibition combines vegetable, animal and crystal.
Consisting of 300 pieces, the exhibition on display at the Baccarat Gallery Museum in Paris, allows for a fascinating dialog between contemporary creation design and heritage. Some never presented before.
Ephemeral creations reinterpret the nature and diversity through five themes, from the Neorenaissance bestiary of the Second Empire to the organic design of the seventies through Art Nouveau exuberance and the modernist stylization of ArtDeco.
Baccarat unveils some of its finest pieces from Japanese vases dating from the Universal Exhibition of 1878 through the pearly dragonflies of the Art Nouveau red crystal vase (1910) exhibited together with the Kenzo Takada Lumière d’Asie collection (2006).
An opportunity to dwell on the expertise and history of the house and discover an enchanted world where vegetable and mineral blend to the delight of the eyes.
