The Daum adventure is an extraordinary story of creativity, which, over the decades, has embarked the House on an artistic adventure in permanent renewal. The House of Daum was founded in 1878, and was rapidly riding the artistic wave of the Ecole de Nancy. It opened itself to all the innovative glassmaking techniques of that era, which enable it to reach the peaks of creativity at the sides of its peer, Emile Gallé. Daum was rapidly recognised as an essential milestone in the prodigious adventure of Art Nouveau.

The Universal Exhibition of 1900 awarded Daum a Grand Prixand brought it international renown. Always innovative, Daum had already cloaked electric light with glass, in association with major artists of the period, like Majorelle and Henry Bergé. As of the mid-1920s, attitudes and tastes changed, the wheel of the creative adventure turned and Daum gradually left the shores of Art Nouveau to approach those of the nascent Art Deco movement.
