His collaboration with Daum crystal began in 1987; some of his “Cactus” creations for the manufacturer were presented by former French President François Mitterrand to President George H. W. Bush as a gift of state. He was the first American whose work became part of the Louvre’s permanent Decorative Arts collection.
McConnico remained active on the global design scene, especially in architecture and interior design. Later projects included the Toupary restaurant on the fifth-floor of the historic Samaritaine department store and the Hermes Museum in Tokyo, which he conceived for the new Renzo Piano building in the famed Ginza shopping district and a collection of limited series and unique pieces for Formia International in Murano Glass.
