Recently the French glass manufacturer Baccarat launched a new collection designed by the Dutch designer Marcel Wanders. The objects will be available from April 2010.
“Wanders, hedonist designer and poet, imbued from childhood with his Dutch roots has been the high priest of the brazen and offbeat style of early 21st-century design ever since the Dutch school emerged as a seminal influence. Baccarat has also joined in, claiming Marcel Wanders as one of its own, for his whimsical inspiration drawn straight from the Arts Décoratifs. Channeling the natural world, Marcel Wanders dreamed up “United Crystal Woods” for Baccarat, a collection bringing together several facets of the company.”
