Can someone please explain the meaning of these branded works of art?
Well by juxtaposing one of the most famous luxury French brands with the bloody symbol of the French Revolution, the Chanel Guillotine by Tom Sachs plays with the idea of luxury, wealth and status. Chanel represents the distinction of wealth and status whereas the guillotine is the destruction of wealth and status. So the art object itself becomes inversely self-reflexive since the guillotine is meant to kill the very "bourgeoisie" who can afford a Chanel brand guillotine. In this respect, the thing becomes a functionless object (which is the very definition of art itself funnily enough).
The other artworks are not Tom Sachs and do not delve as deep, so I cannot explain them in the same way.
