Eye Candy of the Week - Crystal Candy Set by Jaime Hayon

Pina Passion Vase

Crystal Candy Set Collection for Baccarat

Jaime Hayon



The opportunity to research and exercise creative possibilities along with Baccarat led to the creation of the Crystal Candy Set.

The approach was guided by the search for exquisite color and material combinations. With these pieces, Hayon wanted to replicate the richness of fresh tropical fruit using crystal and other materials, such as ceramics.

Using a variety of textures and thicknesses, a new game of reflection has been accomplished with each of the 9 characters that make up the collection. Diverse crystal cutting techniques can be appreciated throughout the collection. They result in a series of soft, feminine shapes with touch of humor. Fruity inspirations are mixed with gem-like features: pineapples, pomegranates, golf balls and water drops are some of the ideas explored.

The pieces are a limited edition of 25.

Sweet! ... Really Sweet!

Love these, and the sketches! I checked out their website, and they did that wonderful all white bath for an Italian bath company, with a laser cut mirror- I loved it!

Also, I have collected decanters for a while now.

Nice eye candy Ivan!

Hi Ivan
I also love the nice would it be to frame it and have it as a piece of artwork in your home!
The decanter is just gorgeous but with only 25 being made, they are going to be a collectors item.
