Fouquet

Fouquet

The Ch√Ęteau de Vaux-le-Vicomte was built for Nicolas Fouquet, the finance minister of Louis XIV, between 1658 and 1661. A great patron of the arts, Fouquet called upon the best artists of the time to build his own magnificent palace.

The inspiration for Cassandra's Fouquet design appeared in Fouquet's bedroom: a pair of ornate candle holders mounted onto the wall.

Fouquet Design Story

Keeping the shape in mind, Cassandra returned to her workshop and inverted the shape with her own stylistic features. Reimagining a pearl in place of a candle, this gilded beacon glows in its own unique way and can be worn as a pendant or earrings.
