jaime hayon: candy light for baccarat

‘candy light’, designed by jaime hayon for baccarat

jaime hayon‘s ‘candy light’ series, designed for baccarat, juxtaposes the bright finish and solid form of ceramic with the clarity and cut of textured crystal.

hayon’s first lamps for the company, the series is an extension of his 2009 ‘crystal candy set’. the pieces are designed with a ceramic base of copper, platinum, or white, and a crystal shade that is modeled after baccarat’s juvisy pattern. a red crystal pendant at the lamp’s base serves as the switch. when the lamp is lit, the crystal shade casts its waffle reflection onto the base, and scatters light onto the surrounding surfaces.

the works were on display in the baccarat exhibition during milan design week 2011.
