New Marcel Wanders for Baccarat

Marcel Wanders is one of those designers I keep coming back to, but considering his new piece for Baccarat, can you blame me? Drawing on the idea of of "New Antiques," Wanders has created this beauty as part of his Rois de la Forêt collection for the storied French crystal brand.

So, what are "New Antiques" exactly? According to Wanders, they represent an approach to design that bridges past and present. By referencing historical shapes, styles and archetypes, and recreating them anew, he says, pieces of the past can be enjoyed in the contemporary moment.

In other words, opulent cut crystal hearkening back to Baccarat's founding under Louis XV plus sleek Italian marble equals modern day perfection.

The limited-edition vase will be available exclusively through Baccarat.com.
