Philippe Starck reties the forgotten knot of Baccarats tradition, in using Black Crystal with his usual artistic talent. With the Darkside Collection, Philippe Starck invites us to explore the darkest side of nature from which of course emerges the light of crystal in all of its brilliance.
Playing on the paradoxes and the contrasts between the diffracted light of clear crystal and the shadowy sparkle of onyx, the light of day and the tenebrous darkness, Philippe Starck reinvented the Baccarat classic with an innovative and contemporary twist. Reviving the tradition of Baccarat black crystal, the architectural form of each object, completely coated in darkness.Black and sleek, the flat cut pattern and beveled angles provide a fresh take on this longstanding classic. The collection is still characterized by its storied and elegant past, but Starcks edgy interpretation gives it a new identity: modern cult item de rigueur. Due to the nature of hand blown and hand cut crystal there will be slight variations from glass to glass. All sizes are approximant and each glass may have a slight variation in weight. Air bubbles can appear in hand blown glass and are not considered a flaw.
