Mer de Corail Collection
Imagination and creation of the Daum crystal manufacturer take us to the depths of the coral reefs to explore the incredible richness of the underwater life, inhabited by thousands of animal and plant species, adorned with fascinating colours and extravagant shapes. The creation and know-how of Daum are dedicated to this sublime secret nature, revealing the Mer de Corail collection, enriched this season with extraordinary fish and a precious vase in white crystal accentuated with gold.
The Mer de Corail collection is an inspiration of a journey without borders. The Maison Daum continues to explore this bewildering territory, and introduces an exquisite white coral structured vase, hand gilded in gold using an ancestral technique. Like golden rays reflecting off the surface of the sea, the fine gilding emphasizes the preciousness and fragility of the coral, and the translucent white crystal creates soft nuances.
In a limited edition of 99, this unique vase is a marriage of two ancestral know-hows: the lost-wax technique that the Daum manufacturer has mastered for generations, and the hand-gilding technique. This beautiful contrast of white and gold will blend elegantly in your interiors.
Cogito By Isabelle Carabantes
The meeting between Isabelle Carabantes and the Daum crystal manufacturer was based on two passions: sculpture and animals. The extraordinary beauty of nature and the animal world is the link between Daum and the artist and gives birth to a sublime version of the great ape of Isabelle Carabantes – The Cogito.
Some of the artist’s works echo the reading of scientific or philosophical works that shed new light on the animal world. They confirm that animals are endowed with a palette of feelings and an intelligence in the image of humans. This is the case for the Cogito, which is not that of Descartes, but which was born from the reading of a book relating to the work on metacognition: the study of awareness of one’s own learning or thinking process, carried out on the great apes.
This impressive sculpture, placed on a magnificent base in patinated bronze, required more than 400 hours of realization by the master craftsmen of the Daum crystal manufacturer. The creation in crystal paste is a real technical feat. This noble and fragile material perfectly mastered by the crystal manufacturer, sublimates this work of art, and brings a new dimension of colour and light. The Cogito is a limited edition of 50.
Méditation by Sylvie Mangaud
The artist Sylvie Mangaud delights us once again with Meditation. Hugging her knees delicately, this graceful work emanates elegance and a peaceful ambiance. The sculpture draws us towards its calm state of mind and leaves us in a serene world. In a limited edition of 375, the soft pink nuances of Meditation will create a harmonious setting for your interiors.
Origine Emeraude By GIMS
Gims, an icon of French urban pop, has captivated us for many years. After studying at the Beaux-Arts (graphic design and communication – applied arts), Gims wanted to realize his dream by touching various fields. Passionate about know-how, he took up the challenge to design and to create his first work of art in France in collaboration with one of the most beautiful French luxury Maisons: Daum. Thus, the blue Origine sculpture in a limited edition of 8 was born in January 2021. Following the success of this launch, Gims and the Maison Daum collaborate once again this season, to reveal the Origine sculpture in a magnificent shade of emerald green.
His creation, a sculpture-like vase with the features of African masks influenced by Art Deco, is the reflection of his bicultural background between France and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Inspired by his roots, Gims wanted to pay tribute to Africa with his “Origine” vase. With an almost lyrical interpretation and pure contemporary lines, Gims highlights his artistic influences to create a hollow vase, 56 cm tall.
The explorers of the Maison Daum venture into the wilderness and bring us the remarkable feline – the wild leopard. With the Leopard collection, the craftsmen of the manufacturer delicately depict the beautiful predators in its natural habitat. During the day, the majestic cat lounges on top of a tree branch in the savannah, observing its surroundings and guarding its territory; at night, the creature moves along the forest with fluid grace. In a hunting mode, the leopard is alert and ready to pounce on its prey.
The Daum atelier highlights the beauty of the leopard’s rosettes, unique to each individual animal, and reveals a striking tray of the portrait of the animal in relief. The particular nuances of the Leopard collection evoke the incredible camouflage ability of the leopard, and match seamlessly with the leather tones of desks, shelves, and libraries, creating an absolute timeless ambiance.
The gardens of the world are reinterpreted in crystal. Daum plays with its artistic influences by paying homage to the most beautiful flowers. This season, the Maison Daum offers a decorative flower and a vase in the form of a bouquet – “Sweet Garden”, an armful of different varieties of flowers, picked on a rural walk.
