Campbell-Rey is a creative consultancy and design partnership founded by Duncan Campbell and Charlotte Rey.
Working fluently across the fields of creative direction, branding, curation and design, Campbell-Rey’s practice is united by a grounding in culture, a sense of irreverence and a playful, elegant aesthetic.
Together they have undertaken commissions for some of the worlds most innovative and desirable brands.
To celebrate the 250th anniversary of Baccarat, the legendary French crystal manufacturer, Campbell-Rey were commissioned to oversee the design and photography of a commemorative coffee table book. The result is a 420-page celebration of craftsmanship and creativity that explores the art of crystal making and its finest examples from 1764 until the present day. From the Imperial Russian Court to the palaces of India, Baccarat has completed bespoke commissions for presidents, popes and kings, as well as working with some of the most prominent artists and designers of modern times including Salvador Dalí, Philippe Starck, Ettore Sottsass, Kenzo Takada and Coco Chanel.
One of the challenges of the design was to respect the codes of the maison, while celebrating Baccarat’s 21st century incarnation. The formidable history was combined with an exploration into the highly skilled ateliers as well as the many designer collaborations to create a universe that is at once refined and wholly contemporary.
