Lalique symbolises the epitome of home luxury, creating beautiful objet d’art since the beginning of the 20th century. Combining a rich history and generations of knowhow Lalique continue to produce artistically beautiful objects for the home.
René Lalique started his career in jewellery, and he quickly became the master of the Art nouveau jewel. He blended symbolism and naturalism, inspired by Japanese artists he remodelled long-abandoned techniques & materials, and in 1907 he discovered a passion for glass. The artist craftsman became a manufacturer; he decorated the Orient Express, designed the fountains on the Rond Point des Champs Elysees, and gained international success for his work.
Today, Lalique creations are still manufactured in the Alsace area of France, renowned for its glassmaking. Each object is meticulously created by hand, from the initial gathering of the crystal to the final sculpting, passing through several artisans, all experts in their fields.
Controlling and refining transparency and reflection, Lalique continue to produce unique & beautiful designs, whilst remaining faithful to the creative spirit of René Lalique.
René Lalique began his career as a freelance artist, designing pieces of jewellery for French jewellers Cartier and Boucheron. In 1885, he opened his own business and designed and made his own jewellery and other glass pieces. By 1890, Lalique was recognised as one of France's foremost Art Nouveau jewellery designers.
Lalique was best known for his creations in glass art and in the 1920s, he became noted for his work in the Art Deco style. Influenced by childhood holidays spent in Ay, rural France, many of his designs showcase plants, flowers and flowing lines.
Both unique and commercial works of René Lalique are in the collections of a large number of public museums around the world including the Museu Calouste Gulbenkian in Lisbon, the Musée Lalique and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in France, Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Metropolitan Museum in New York State.
