The Art of Lalique: Contemporary Fine Art Collaborations and New Forms of Creative Expression

EXHIBITION: Monday 13 May, noon to 8pm, Tuesday 14 to Sunday 19 May, 8.30am to 8pm.
TALK & DRINKS: Tuesday 14 May, 6.30pm to 7.30pm in Le Magritte Bar.

Each year, London Craft Week promotes the work of the best craftspeople with a range of workshops, demonstrations and displays, and The Beaumont is proud to participate and provide a platform for exceptional craftsmanship for the seventh year running.

We invite you to visit our Lobby and Grand Hallway during London Craft Week to view an exhibition of remarkable pieces by Lalique, the iconic French crystal house founded in 1888 by renowned avant-garde artist René Lalique, and the crown jewel of France's crystal glass houses.

Still imbued with the sort of creative energy that René Lalique brought to the company's inception, today Lalique enters into exclusive collaborations with major contemporary artists and designers, including Damien Hirst, Zaha Hadid, Nic Fiddian-Green, Mario Botta, Anish Kapoor, James Turrell and the Magritte Estate, to create unique and exceptional works of art, some of which will be on display. These extraordinary encounters between art and crystal give rise to new forms of creative expression, using the interplay of light, transparency, colour and contours.

Since 1922, all Lalique's pieces continue to be handcrafted in the house's sole manufacturing site, located in the Alsace region in France, with many of the Lalique Art pieces using the lost-wax technique to realize some of these works of art. This long, delicate and arduous process is unmatched in allowing fine details to be brought to light, creating a unique texture akin to a "crystal skin".

The exhibition is open daily at no charge.
