In 1927, René Lalique’s boundless imagination and creative genius lead to the creation of the Bacchantes vase. The iconic design features the young priestesses of Bacchus with their voluptuous beauty and curves. A work of unparalleled beauty, the splendor and sensuality of the vase continue to leave admirers spellbound.
The spectacular rows of plane trees lining “the most beautiful Avenue of the world” inspired the design of the finely engraved crystal leaves that adorn the Champs-Elysées bowl, designed by Marc Lalique in 1951. This iconic sculpture of light and crystal captures the very essence of Paris.
The Lalique creations have always paid tribute to the Woman, a major source of inspiration of the House. Admiring Women, Lalique depicts them as an allegory, gracious and ethereal or voluptuous with an arresting sensuality and mysterious demeanour. The purity of satin-finished crystal evokes their grace and velvety texture of the skin. Through crystal transformed by the human hand, the light reveals the Woman.
In 1926, at the pinnacle of his art, René Lalique imagines the “Tourbillons" vase, inspired by the blossoming of a fern. Round and geometric, it brilliantly celebrates the creative talent of the great glass artist of Art Deco.
The original Fish in glass was designed in 1912 by René Lalique and has since become an iconic piece in the Lalique universe. It first appeared in turquoise and has been re-issued in an extensive palette of coloured crystal.
The kaleidoscopic effect of the Mossi is a feat of technical mastery, playing on the contrast between the brilliance of its cabochons and the frosting of its parison. This timeless piece was designed by René Lalique in 1933. It has become emblematic of the House and transfigured through various sizes, colours and functionalities.
