Zenith Onyx 2-Light Sconce w/Black Shade by Philippe Starck for Baccarat

$9,995

About

Philippe Starck has restyled the Baccarat Zénith collection with his usual talent, reverting to the tradition of black crystal—a shade that reveals the power and sculptural dimension of this emblematic creation. This two-light sconce comes with black shades and aluminum reflectors which magnify the effect of the light on the black crystal. Baccarat's signature pendant, a red crystal octagon is linked to an arrowed prism signed by Starck. The Zénith collection embraces the line of traditional crystal chandeliers developed by Baccarat since the first half of the 19th century. It is composed of beveled diamond cut elements and twisted branches known as « Bambou tors » or bamboo twists. Admired worldwide, since it was first created, the Zénith chandelier has continued to illuminate exceptional palaces and homes. Timeless and fascinating, it spans the ages, looking ever more fabulous with each new special order and each new interpretation by international designers.

About the Designer

Philippe Starck

A ubiquitous name in the world of contemporary architecture and design, Philippe Starck has created everything from hotel interiors and luxury yachts to toothbrushes and teakettles. Yet for every project in his diverse portfolio, Starck has maintained an instantly recognizable signature style: a look that is dynamic, sleek, fluid and witty.

The son of an aircraft engineer, Starck studied interior design at the École Nissim de Camondo in Paris. He started his design career in the 1970s decorating nightclubs in the city, and his reputation for spirited and original interiors earned him a commission in 1983 from French president François Mitterrand to design the private apartments of the Élysée Palace. Starck made his name internationally in 1988 with his design for the interiors of the Royalton Hotel in New York, a strikingly novel environment featuring jewel-toned carpeting and upholstery and furnishings with organically shaped cast-aluminum frames. He followed that up in 1990 with an equally impressive redesign of the Paramount Hotel in Manhattan, a project that featured over-scaled furniture as well as headboards that mimicked Old Masters paintings.

Like their designer, furniture pieces by Starck seem to enjoy attention. Designs such as the wedge-shaped J Series club chair; the sweeping molded-mahogany Costes chair; the provocative Ara table lamp; or the sinuous WW stool never fail to raise eyebrows. Other Starck pieces make winking postmodern references to historical designs. His polycarbonate Louis Ghost armchair puts a new twist on Louis XVI furniture; his Out-In chair offers a futuristic take on the classic English high-back chair. But for all his flair, Starck maintains a populist vision of design. While one of his limited-edition Prince de Fribourg et Treyer armchairs might be priced at $7,000, a plastic Starck chair for the Italian firm Kartell is available for around $250. As you will see on 1stDibs, Philippe Starck’s furniture makes a bold statement — and it can add a welcome bit of humor to even the most traditional decor.
