Lalique Parfums and Knoll Prestige Packaging collaborated for the realisation of the Lalique Noir Premier Deux Cigales 1911 Black Coffret, an exclusive limited edition.
The coffret was created to magnify the Noir Premier perfume bottle. It is extremely complex both in the construction, and the process to manufacture the different materials used.
It is composed of a black glossy lacquered wood base and two majestic gold metal galvanised wings, with the cicadas decoration created in filigree. Housed in these wings, a golden mirror in the background reflects the lost wax bottle.
The development of its unique shape, especially the opening system, with the progressive deployment of the two wings was a long and challenging process. Moreover, this coffret combines multiple materials, steel, wood, mirror, fabric, which required colour matching and intense testing.
This is the result of 18 months of intensive collaboration between Lalique and Knoll Packaging, including 12 months of technical development and colour matching.
Lalique Parfums and Knoll Prestige Packaging received the Grand Prix du Jury 2017 Formes de Luxe for the realisation of the Lalique Noir Premier Deux Cigales 1911 Black Coffret. The Jury particularly highlighted the exceptional achievement (56 cm and 15 kg), the technical prowess in the progressive deployment of the cicada wings and the perfect realisation of the coffret.
