On LEDs and other small items

"Apparat" pays homage to the Harcourt glass. The collection they designed captures the aura of an iconic glass or a Marie Louise vase in filigree or gilt medallions, on glasses, carafes and vases. The pure forms of these objects, like the Dyonisos carafe, are chosen from among Baccarat's contemporary archetypes.
In this cultural "mix and match" of classic icons and pure forms, we observe an impulse to blur the rules of the genre to achieve another seductive view of the object. Nothing is lost and everything is transformed, thanks to the skilled hand and original talent of 5.5.
