Le Roi Soleil By Marcel Wanders For Baccarat
There are some lighting masterpieces that are worth to preserve, like the Le Roi Soleil by Marcel Wanders for Baccarat. A spherical, contemporary chandelier that connects to modern architecture, yet remains recognizable as a true Baccarat icon. Today, Modern Chandeliers is going to show you everything you need to know about this amazing lighting design. Prepare to be amazed:
Designed in 2016 as a tribute to the illustrious monarch Louis XIV, this exceptional light creation exists as a dazzling symbol of modernity.
Staying true to the original design language of Baccarat’s iconic ‘Zénith’ chandelier, this magnificent reinterpretation is an ode to the ingenuity and craftsmanship of the manufactory artisans.
Marcel Wanders states that ‘in an ode to the know-how of the manufactory’s artisans, I set out to celebrate the timeless quality of the zénith chandelier, a baccarat icon. ‘le roi soleil’ glitters and radiates throughout a kingdom of light.’
With stretched and distorted branches, tassels and octagons, this dazzling reinterpretation of a Baccarat icon have inspired NY design critic, Dan Rubinstein, to emphatically state that “Tradition gets seriously warped at Baccarat.”
Featuring softened angles and crystal shades with cut motifs that have been inclined to form to the curves of the chandelier, ‘Le Roi Soleil’ delivers an imposing promise of a new era of light.
