Representing the ultimate in artisanal skills, utmost precision and fundamental values, Lalique stands for luxury, excellence and creativity.
Lalique is known to be the inventor of modern jewelry and perfume bottles, before becoming a Master in the art of glassmaking. In 1907, Rene Lalique acquired a passion for glass, which had become an element of his earlier works in jewelry. His highly developed sense of balance and harmony combined with his total mastery of the glass-working technique made him ideally suited to the challenge of creating works on a monumental scale.
The architectural projects on which Rene Lalique collaborated on played a large part in his career. He is the man who created what Colette named the “Marvelous Fountain” displayed at the International Exhibition of Decorative Arts in Paris in 1925. He was also commissioned to decorate the presidential cabins for the Orient Express and the lighting for the first-class dining room of the Normandy ocean liner. Similarly, he designed the doors in the Imperial Palace of Prince Asaka, a Japanese collector of Art Deco pieces. The palace is known today as the Teien Museum in Tokyo. Perhaps Rene’s most widely appreciated contribution, seen every day by thousands of people remains his magnificent glass windows adorning the Henri Bendel building on New York’s Fifth Avenue. Lalique’s daring designs brought him international acclaim until his death in 1945. He remains the undisputed Master of glass.
Now, a crystal company, Lalique remains faithful to the spirit of its founder and has always prided itself on the core values of art and craftsmanship. All pieces have been manufactured at the Lalique factory in Wingen-sur-Moder, France since 1921. The Lalique style plays upon the beauty created by the use of clear and satin-finished crystal.
Today, this luxurious and sensual architectural universe opens up for all to see with the Lalique Interior Decoration Exhibition (IDE). Lalique enhances and elevates any interior space with its light and beauty. Featured in the IDE are a wide range of spectacular furniture and lighting pieces including crystal tables, consoles, mirrors, chandeliers, sconces, lamps, door handles, door knobs, cabinet knobs and architectural panels. Catering to this growing segment, Lalique is now creating dedicated architectural pieces and lighting collections for interior designers, architects and customers to fully experience the Lalique universe.
