Fusion collection by Fernando and Humberto Campana for Baccarat

November 12th, 2013 by retail design blog

‘Fusion’ combines the distinct expertise of French crystal manufacturer Baccarat and Brazilian designers Fernando and Humberto Campana, offering a collection of lighting which forms an alliance between two very distinct cultures and creative territories.

Five pieces complete the set–from small table lamps ‘Nave’ and ‘Amuleto’, to pendant variations noted by ‘Cosmo’ and ‘Galaxia’, rounded out by the 24-light ‘Zénith Alvorada’ chandelier. Each lighting piece is finely handcrafted, with the main body and shades sheathed or enhanced through the weaving and plaiting of natural bamboo or wicker complimented by colored crystal elements,
ultimately transforming the primary use of the materials employed into precious objects.

The hybridization of these distinct parts give new meaning to the principles of collage, thus revealing organic shapes, creating contrasts between smooth and textured surfaces. Crystal looks to a new future, as an exotic, unconventional light source at the crossroads of art and design.
