Time stands still; life and beauty, death and chaos are frozen in crystal: The Eternal Collection is a series of sculptures and panels rendered in exquisite crystal in a collaboration between British artist Damien Hirst and Lalique. World exclusive presentation of twelve works from the ‘Eternal’ collection: sculptures and crystal panels created by Damien Hirst and crafted by Lalique’s master glassmakers. The presentation of these exceptional pieces is the culmination of four years of research and innumerable conversations between Hirst and Lalique, combining the creative expertise of both artist and craftsmen. The themes are that which have remained central to Hirst’s work since the late 1980s. In this collection, the British artist presents a series of motifs that can be read as emblematic of the cycle of life. Developed over a number of years through exchanges between the artist and the crystal workshops, this project has given rise to a series of…

Signature, a Collaboration with Pierre Yves-Rochon Discover the new Signature collection of furniture by Pierre-Yves Rochon for LALIQUE. In this collection, he wanted to write a new story in which metal sublimates the transparency, purity and brilliance of crystal. The four pieces, Vibration, Causeuses, Coutard and 2 Perruches – born from the quest for the most beautiful aesthetic effect. Marked by the precision and elegance of metal, the designs give the crystal the freedom to blend into interior architecture and furniture design in a new manner. These exquisitely designed pieces of functional art are beautifully expressive. The lines are harmoniously balanced in the blending of angular with fluid lines found in the shapes of the human and fauna form. Each piece perfectly channels the essence of Rene Lalique’s style creating a collection that is masterful in its execution and sure to be timeless classics as with all pieces of LALIQUE . I have…

Château Hochberg, originally named Château Teutsch after the family that had it built, is located on the site of the former Hochberg glassworks, which closed down in 1868. The last owners of the works, Victor and Edouard Teutsch, commissioned the building of this magnificent residence between 1863 and 1866. In keeping with the Second Empire style from the epoch of Napoleon III, Château Hochberg features imposing façades decorated with bands of pink sandstone, large-scale windows and handsome wrought iron balconies. For a number of years, the Hochberg glassworks was the centre of the Teutsch family’s professional commitments but also of their daily life, particularly that of Edouard Teutsch. He was fervent in his opposition to the annexation of Alsace and Lorraine by Germany. Nevertheless, he got himself elected as a member of the German parliament, the Reichstag, for the Saverne constituency. In 1874, he made a blistering speech of protest…
