LET THERE BE LIGHT

Bac­carat’s Le Roi Soleil crys­tal chan­de­lier

Robb Report Singapore - - Grand Openings - By AARON DE SILVA

Bac­carat’s Zenith crys­tal chan­de­lier has been around since the early 19th cen­tury. In its con­tem­po­rary guise, the iconic light fix­ture has been given up­dates from ev­ery de­signer of note, from Philippe Starck to Jaime Hayon and now, Mar­cel Wan­ders.

Wan­ders’ rein­ter­pre­ta­tion is called Le Roi Soleil in hon­our of France’s Sun King Louis XIV.

In re­design­ing the con­tours and soft­en­ing the an­gles, Wan­ders stretched and dis­torted the branches, tassels and oc­tagons in or­der to cre­ate the per­fect sphere.

The crys­tal shades are adorned with cut mo­tifs in­clined to embrace the curves of the fix­ture and re­flect or re­fract the op­ti­mum amount of light. The made-to-or­der chan­de­lier comes in two sizes, with ei­ther 24 or 40 lights. Gift must be pur­chased by 31 De­cem­ber 2016. Please email ul­ti­mate­gift­guide@imv.com. sg for en­quiries and to pur­chase. Visit or for more details. ≠
