Crystal Clear

Baccarat, the renowned Parisian crystal house established in 1764, has commissioned two designers to create special collections for 2008. New York interior designer Vicente Wolf’s “Latitude” collection of rippled crystal vases, bowls, and candlesticks ($90 to $6,660) is based on his signature design philosophy of simplicity and integrity. Rising star Stéphanie Balini, a recent graduate of Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, a top French design school, won the Comité Colbert’s Young Designer’s competition with her “Damoiselles” glassware for Baccarat last fall, and the crystal maker produced the 12-piece collection, which debuted for spring. The distinctive crystal glasses ($2,500 for a set of four) feature garlands of flowers on clear crystal, scattered with wheel-engraved designs in both black and white (shown). (www.baccarat.com)
