Architect editor Jean-Paul Cassia and the master sculptor of light LALIQUE are delighted to announce their collaboration to design and develop bespoke hotels and residences around the world. Positioned as bespoke luxury assets in unique settings, the LALIQUE xCassia global design signature explores architecture, interiors and furniture design inspired by key themes reminiscent of René Lalique’s extraordinary and enduring legacy.
Speaking about the association with xCassia:
“LALIQUE’s legacy starts with the genius behind the brand, René Lalique, and evolved from its first Parisian Studio in 1885 to ornament, jewellery, perfume, glassworks, interior design and after it was acquired by Art & Fragrance in 2005, LALIQUE launched itself into lifestyle trends with the creation of its home collections, museum and the opening of its first hotel. Founded in 1888, we celebrated 130 years of savoir-faire and creative excellence in the French “Art of Living”, producing timeless creations: art objects, light fixtures, furniture, jewellery, fragrances and more – all “made in France”. The ability to extend selectively and exclusively our work into the realm of design for architecture, interiors and furnishings is a natural part of our passion for creating enduring LALIQUE experiences." Bertrand Dedouvre
“I have known the LALIQUE brand all my life and as a child was fascinated by my mother’s collection of vases, plates and perfume bottles with their delicate sculpted form. This brand is about light! So, when I met LALIQUE to begin our conversation I was instantly struck by how modern and fresh it was, how versatile and adaptable it was in the evolution of its craft. In our work together, we intend to design and create unique homes and experiences that embody LALIQUE’s enlightened craftsmanship and timeless modern luminosity.” Jean-Paul Cassia
