What’s Your Definition of Beauty? Baccarat Crystal: Perfection and Forever! CiCiLicous Vlog #68

Food, Travel, Lifestyle Videos — Be happy and be CiCiLicious!

 

 

A symbol of beauty and crystallized perfection, Baccarat has been a celebration of transfigured senses since the Age of Enlightenment. Its fabulous destiny—of magic and fascination, of timeless skill and glassworkers’ panache—is written in sparkling letters and imbued with ancestral modernity.

 

Founded in Baccarat (Lorraine) in the mid-eighteenth century by Bishop Louis de Montmorency-Laval of Metz, the world’s most prestigious crystal manufacture has flourished over the centuries as a well of inspiration for all connoisseurs in search of exceptional work. The legend began in 1764 when Louis XV authorized the creation of a factory opposite the village of Baccarat. By 1823 Baccarat had become the leading crystalworks in France; it continued to grow, pushing the boundaries of creation and spreading the prestige of crystal to the four corners of the globe. An adventure transformed into odyssey.

 

With an exceptional collection of archives (65,000 molds and 200,000 drawings dating from the firm’s creation), Baccarat is, more than ever, a symbol of exception, of perfection, distinguished by icons fashioned from breath and exalted by fire. With the support of twenty-five talented Meilleurs Ouvriers de France (Best French Craftsmen), the crystalworks has always drawn inspiration from its roots, its craftsmanship and its heritage to transmute tradition into creation. Baccarat transmits its unique expertise through technical innovations and stylistic, daring and exceptional partnerships with elite craftsmen (glassblowers, glasscutter, engravers) to transcend its excellence, becoming a major international luxury label, a symbol of French art de vivre.

 

To make this sensual and poetic experience last forever, Baccarat is constantly experimenting with new ideas, integrating creative input from the best young talent and major designers. Creators such as George Chevalier, Ettore Sottsass, Van Day Truex, Elie Top, Andrée Putman, Philippe Starck, Arik Levy, Jaime Hayon and Marcel Wanders have worked with the often paradoxical and fabulous alchemical processes, inspired by the magic of crystal to capture the latest styles. With two new collections per year and a catalogue of more than two thousand long-term works, Baccarat illuminates tableware, decorative objects, jewelry, carafes and chandeliers. The magic is at work, from the company’s iconic legacy to special commissions. Elegant, precious, forever innovative—and always harmonious.

 

From its earliest years, Baccarat has boasted markets on every continent, and has confirmed its expansion abroad, with an ultimate consecration: the 2003 inauguration of its head offices in Paris, designed by Philippe Starck. Located in the former mansion of Charles and Marie-Laure de Noailles, the museum, boutique and “Cristal Room” restaurant have rekindled the firm’s enchantment and wonder. The 2008 opening of the Moscow Maison Baccarat was a brilliant echo to the Parisian temple, and achieved the goal of offering its clientele marvelously witty, intimate and privileged crystal palaces—a world of dreams, a wave of modernity.

 

With a proud history reaching back three centuries, Baccarat remains more than ever a symbol of eternally young and unrivaled luxury. Magnificent Baccarat crystal, a telluric legacy distinguished by a collection of timeless masterpieces, remains the finest of all, perfectly in tune with its timeless legend.
