Crystal clear: ECAL students rework Baccarat glasses

12 : 04 : 2011 Milan : Augustin Scott De Martinville : European Manufacturing

Milan – ‘The only way for European manufacturing to remain relevant is by being the best,’ Augustin Scott de Martinville tells LS:N Global. ‘And by bringing older methods to create contemporary objects.’

Scott de Martinville clearly wants to help European manufacturing remain relevant. At the Milan design fair this week, students from the luxury design course he runs at ECAL have used Baccarat’s 170-year-old Harcourt glass as inspiration to create new, luxury, whimsical but relevant items.

Sophie Depéry has used the crystal glasses to make vases for in Hats. Guillaume Noiseux has re-imagined them as jam jars in Jars. Doris Zaiser – who Scott de Martinville tips as one to watch – has turned them into brightly coloured animals in Party Animals.

LS:N Global has reported on ECAL’s pioneering luxury course before.
