Lalique history and know-how : A unique and exceptional history, style and know how
Reproduce the emotion of the artist, through work of crystal sculpture and a set of lights . . . .
. Revolutionary artist, jeweler famous of the belle epoque, favorite of sarah bernhardt, admired by gallé, rené Lalique aroused extraordinary enthusiasm in the world called the "rodin of transparencies" by maurice rostand, Lalique has succeeded in creating an art timeless and graceful resounding success.
Exceptional jeweller and great master of glass, rené Lalique is among the leading designers of the art nouveau and art deco.
Since 1921, the manufacture located in alsace, area renowned for its glassmaking, has perpetuated a traditional know-how. The human hand that of both artist and craftsman, marks every object of its print and its strength, which convey this “immaterial” presence: Our know-how.
The Lalique style comes from an artistic gesture, outlining a drawing in total osmosis with crystal, a style that one easily recognizes through the manual modeling of the shapes and patterns, as if sculptured, the richness of the figurative details, the different types of finishing which create this characteristic contrast of clear and matt crystal. Fueled by the creativity of a line of artists out of the ordinary, the universe Lalique has a rich expertise that comes from tableware to decorating, the jewelry to perfumes.
|The Lalique collection figurines chrysis : Even though Lalique has diversified into fine jewellery, art, interior decoration and perfume, we mustn't forget that decorative objects in crystal have always been the core business for the house of Lalique. |
Vases, bowls, statuettes, boxes, bottles and animal figurines, as well as fine glassware make up the essential part of the production from the facility in wingen-sur-moder in alsace.
When he decided to leave fine jewellery, rené Lalique naturally turned to glass which he had already used in some of his jewellery designs. At the time – 1909 – he rented the combs-la-ville glassworks and began by producing perfume bottles for the major perfumers before moving on to decorative objects.
His powerful imagination led to the design of a variety of different pieces: Vases, bowls, statuettes, animals, clocks, boxes, bottles, glasses and carafes which he created from glass at the wingen-sur-moder plant starting in 1921.
Today, Lalique perpetuates this tradition with crystal productions of either pieces originally designed by rené, marc or marie-claude Lalique, or new pieces from the Lalique design studio.
Each year, we release two collections of over ten pieces to constantly renew our offer to our loyal Lalique customers.
The entire Lalique work is inspired from the themes that were dear to rené Lalique, in other words, women, flora and fauna. Plus, artistic trends like art nouveau and art déco heavily contributed to the development of the very distinctive Lalique style.
Lalique is essentially the bold combination of a material with seasoned know-how.
Thanks to the contrast between transparency and satin finishing, the crystal comes to life and becomes expressive; it joyfully catches shadow and light to offer endless nuances and depth.
All of the decorative objects are exclusively handmade by master glass makers in the studios in alsace and reflect the perfection of the art of crystal making.
