Chad Schuety, Creative Services at Baccarat, designed Crystal. The Tuile de Cristal chandelier above her was designed by Arik Levy. Crystal was inspired by the majestic animal carousels from the late 19th century. As Cows were rarely seen on carousels, Crystal just wanted to be included. As she shines bright, she is a beacon of hope to those who feel left out, and she is here to help the less fortunate. Today, Crystal represents anyone who can see themselves in her reflective exterior. Crystal’s coat is made of mirrored vinyl, dichroic film, and stainless steel. Above her is a Baccarat’s Tuile De Cristal chandelier.
