At Salone del Mobile 2016 in Milan, Marcel Wanders and Baccarat presented an exceptional light creation named 'Le Roi Soleil' as a tribute to the illustrious monarch Louis XIV. In an ode to the know-how of the manufactory artisans, Marcel Wanders transformed Baccarat's iconic Zénith chandelier into a sphere of light, a symbol of modernity. With stretched and distorted branches, tassels and octagons, this dazzling reinterpretation of a Baccarat icon has inspired NY design critic, Dan Rubinstein, to emphatically state that “Tradition gets seriously warped at Baccarat.” By softening the angles, adorning the crystal shades with cut motifs and inclining each to better embrace the curves of the chandelier, Marcel Wanders and Baccarat deliver an imposing promise of a new era of light.

Have you heard the news

What is your favourite book

Paper is wood

Are you fond of white

Do you like your gold shiny? 

Do you agree lace is lovely? 

Are you afraid of black

This make me feel sooo happy

Sparkly like silver or shiny like gold

Do you believe broken porcelain brings luck?
