LALIQUE is a legend, symbolic of craftsmanship that commands respect and admiration. Over the years, LALIQUE has become more than just a name; it has become a powerful icon of exceptional know-how, a synonym for excellence, and a style characterized by the mastery of contrast. Drawing on its rich cultural and artistic heritage, its timeless and precious qualities, the brand preserves the energy and insouciance of its heyday while adapting to modern-day tastes.
Today, LALIQUE has entered a new phase of development and modernization. As a result, Silvio Denz, Chairman and C.E.O. of LALIQUE, has decided to make the unique skills of LALIQUE's crystal makers available to contemporary designers, while keeping the greatest admiration and respect for René Lalique’s work and his tremendous creative spirit. Opening this crystal glasswork to new artists allows its exceptional know-how to be interpreted with new eyes and with a fresh creative inspiration.
As part of this new initiative, Mr. Denz asked Zaha Hadid to design the Crystal Architecture collection. It is composed of two vases: their innate fluid lines which seem to have a life of their own superbly highlighted by clear or black crystal. Enhancing the overall effect are those contrasting satin and polished finishes that are the epitome of LALIQUE. This collection was born of a passion for beauty, the search for excellence, and the will to combine the expertise of LALIQUE's master glassmakers with the great creativity and rare talent of a world-famous architect and designer. Through these exceptional masterpieces in a signed and numbered edition, LALIQUE presents a fresh approach to its material, a new formal vocabulary, a new vision.
