Silversea restaurants to feature Lalique crystal panels

|

Silversea Cruises said famed crystal designer Lalique will install several handmade crystal panels in the expanded La Dame restaurants on two of its ships.

Positioned at the restaurants' entrances and along their walls, the handcrafted panels will incorporate two main motifs, both of which were imagined by Lalique's founder, Rene Lalique, in 1935.

One is the Masque de Femme, a design which reveals the face of a mysterious nymph with delicate features, surrounded by aquatic life. The other is Coutard -- its geometric pattern representing a spray of fine transparent water droplets and evoking the appearance of waves in the ocean.

Lalique's pillars, columns and chandeliers for the first-class dining room of the 1930s French liner Le Normandie are considered some of the finest art ever installed on a cruise ship.

Silversea said that during the Silver Shadow's refurbishment in November 2019, the French restaurant La Dame will be remodeled and expanded to accommodate up to 40 diners. On the Silver Moon, coming in 2020, La Dame will be positioned on Deck 8 and will greatly increase in size compared to Silver Muse's La Dame, welcoming almost triple the number of guests.
