Baccarat celebrated the 1st anniversary with support of the internationally recognized designer Arik Levy and exhibiting his exquisite Baccarat crystal lighting collection “Ellipse & Tourbillon” and held a cocktail party in its first lighting showroom at Causeway Bay recently. With approximately 3,300-square-foot spacious showroom, Baccarat Lighting Showroom offers an exclusive sensory adventure of Baccarat crystal lightings.
Arik Levy was born in 1963 in Tel Aviv. A graduate in industrial design from the Art Center Europe in Switzerland, he embarked upon his professional career as a designer in 1991 and has since taken part in various design exhibitions. Arik Levy taught at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle in Paris from 1992-1994. From Ldesign in Paris, Arik Levy and his business partner Pippo Lionni are the creative drive behind diverse projects and prospective undertakings in all design-related areas. Arik Levy’s unique mastery of materials, technology and manufacturing techniques has enabled him to apply his skills to a wide variety of projects and disciplines both in Europe and internationally. From the outset of his career, his concepts, designs and installations have featured in a multitude of events and exhibitions in museums, galleries and art fairs the world over. Some of the world’s most prestigious museums have also chosen to place his designs in their permanent collections.
With Baccarat, it is about creating a top-of-the-range collection of vases and barware, followed by a lighting project, or defining the possible point of contact on the crystal, as though on the brand’s DNA – the place where the Arik Levy graft might successfully take. Arik Levy also knows how to observe with humility in order to understand and roll up his sleeves among Baccarat’s crystalworkers for long enough to take on board the constraints and potential of crystal or a bygone technique.
Arik Levy has been collaborating with Baccarat for many years. Taking inspiration from the past in order to better invent the present, taking the traditional chandelier and its light sources and refining it down to a simple poetic evocation, this is the task Arik Levy set himself. Arik Levy is the designer of“Phantom” and “Torch” contemporary lighting collections for Baccarat. For the “Ellipse & Tourbillon” Collection, Arik Levy reinterprets the Zénith chandelier in a more contemporary style.

Following the success of the “Candy-brissima show for Furla and I” at the Italian Embassies in Tokyo and Moscow, at Bloomingdale’s in New York and La Rinascente in piazza del Duomo in Milan, the artist Sissi was in Hong Kong on 17th of May 2012.
At this event, for the first time Furla presented a sneak preview of the four special edition Candy Bags, fruit of the research and experimentation carried out by the brand’s stylistic team: Candy PicNic (that combines rubber with a wicker base), Candy Aerospace (futuristic and aerodynamic with a combination of rubber and ultra-light chromium-plated aluminium), Candy Burlesque (creative and ultra-feminine, it combines rubber with ostrich skin and a cinematographic feather boa) and Candy Rockstar (metal studs and chains for a spirited look, emphasised by the contours and details in black leather).
Eclectic and versatile, the Candy bag was at the centre of an installation-performance by the artist Sissi who staged a sort of ultra-creative production line: six people working together to assemble various elements that the artist designed earlier. Each one features different materials, colours and details that express a specific style and state of mind that Sissi has categorised with fantastical names. When combined, an incredible gallery of Candy-brissima bags comes to life. Unpredictable, unique pieces.
