About:

As authorised dealers for the Lalique Collection we are able to offer the Interior and Decorative items which are recognised as the ultimate symbol of French luxury.

Established in 1888, Lalique creates beautiful pieces each year that are inspired by three themes dear to René Lalique: women, flora and fauna. Century-old gestures and know-how, passed down from generation to generation to create the wonder of transparency and the brilliance of  crystal.

Lalique has received the prestigious label of Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Enterprise, or EPV), a label of distinction awarded by the French State to recognize French firms for the excellence of their traditional and industrial skills.

Glass is a marvellous material

– René Lalique, 1925

 

The Artisan as Artist:

From the crafting of the pots in which the crystal is molten, to the hot glass workshop where the material is gathered and moulded.

In the seclusion of the workshops, the men and women of Lalique create between 350,000 and 400,000 pieces each year.

Their expertise is the soul of the enterprise.

 

Hot Glass:

Where it all begins.

The minerality of sand and the intensity of fire, the origin of Lalique’s crystal and creations.

The glass makers brave extreme temperatures in the hot glass workshops as they gather, clean, shape and reheat the crystal.

Cold Glass:

Water, pure and alive, an essential element for working and sublimating crystal.

The cold glass workshop resonates with a symphony of diamond-tipped saws working the crystal with water. The crystal’s metamorphosis continues here. The importance given to cold glass is characteristic of Lalique.

It is the result of the extreme attention to detail in the sculpture and finishing of each creation.

Lost-wax:

The lost-wax technique: innovative, meticulous and secret know-how at the service of exceptional creations and works of art.

The procedure, also employed by René Lalique until 1930, provides a unique texture and a peerless level of detail.
