at the 2019 edition of miami art week, virgil abloh has joined forces with french crystal manufacturer baccarat to design a limited-edition collection of glass objects for the home. titled “crystal clear”, the family comprises chandeliers, table vessels, and drinking glasses. inspired by abloh’s “figures of speech” exhibition, which is currently touring the US, each piece in the collection seeks to interpret the elegance and poise associated with the 255 year old baccarat brand.
“crystal clear” is being presented throughout the month of december at the baccarat boutique BBar and lounge at the miami design district — the neighborhood and shopping destination dedicated to fashion, design, art, architecture, and dining. all of the pieces from the limited-edition collection are numbered and are exclusively made to order through baccarat. see more work by virgil abloh here, including his “figures of speech” exhibition currently on view in atlanta.
