René Lalique (1860-1945), considered as the inventor of modern jewellery, was to become one of the geniuses of Art Deco glassware. His mind knew no bounds: he drew inspiration from the animal and plant world and woman was his muse.
In July 2011, the museum will be inaugurated in Wingen-sur-Moder, nestling amid the Northern Vosges, the birthplace of the region's glassware tradition. Indeed, it was here in Alsace that René Lalique decided to build his factory in 1921.
It is still working today and is the only place in the world where Lalique Crystal is made.
There is no other place like the Musée Lalique anywhere else in Europe. Visitors will be able to explore the many faces of the work of this genius, whose name it bears, as well as the work of those who came after him. Sketches, Art Nouveau jewellery, perfume bottles, tableware, unique works of art and mass-produced items in glass and crystal, architectural pieces...
