The Maison Daum expands the Sand collection that was launched last January in collaboration with the celebrated designer Christian Ghion. This extraordinary collection was born from the designer’s desire to explore the organic an often-invisible worlds.
Swallowing sand waves?
Dancing twists of the plant kingdom?
These are some of the many questions that one will interpret.
Without ever being figurative, these pieces are resolutely contemporary and inscribed in the DNA of Daum, and they offer a surprise for the world to see.”

About the brand since 1878
Daum, the legendary glass maker master, has kept alive for more than a century a love relationship with the greatest artists of its time, giving their work of art a second life of crystal and colors. From the Ecole de Nancy, from Art Nouveau to Art Decoratif, from Majorelle to Dali, Arman and Hilton McConnico, Daum has not missed any of the magic rendez-vous of the artistic creation and modern savoir-faire, which has always renewed the alliance of art and art craft.
Few brands have worked with as many artists: for nearly 140 years, more than 350 exceptional signatures have constituted a heritage beyond compare, a unique collection.
How to convey those works into crystal sculptures? This is where Daum’s secret lies, shaper of the exception, highly knowledgeable workshop, laboratory of wonders, designer of incomparable objects.
