Food brings people together. It's at the dining table that we make so many of our best discoveries and memories. This is where the everyday best lives, and Luzerne is here to help you discover it.


Our Heritage

Luzerne is a part of Hiap Huat Holdings, Singapore’s most established ceramics tableware company. Our products are made in the World Ceramics Capital and the birthplace of Blanc de Chine in Dehua, China.

Indigenous kaolin clay from this historical region and are fired at high temperatures to produce a clear translucent texture and a distinctive soft ivory colour. Our over 800 trained artisans ensure the exceptional workmanship of every piece. We believe that high quality, well-designed tableware should be accessible to all.

As the preferred tableware of leading hotels, airlines, dining establishments, guests and homeowners around the world, we believe in helping one and all achieve their everyday best.

Our History

1947

Hiap Huat establishes itself as a trading company importing housewares from primarily China, Japan and Czechoslovakia, growing through export development in nearby regional markets such as Malaysia and Indonesia.

1973

Following its early successes and growing reach, Hiap Huat reorganises as a holding company, and expands into manufacturing and property development.

1982

With the building of Hiap Huat House complete, Group operations become centralised in a single location, from which overseas forays can be conducted with greater efficiency.

1994

Hiap Huat Holdings buys a factory in Dehua, China, and embarks on large-scale tableware manufacturing - a venture that allows it to thrive during the widespread economic recession in Southeast Asia that soon follows.

2004

The hospitality industry in China flowers, and so does the demand for unique, signature pieces. Luzerne rises to the occasion with custom tableware, investing in new, cutting-edge equipment that makes design processes increasingly adaptable.

Today

We raise the bar for ceramics with our brands Luzerne and L by Luzerne. Bridging tradition with new technologies, we produce over 28 million pieces annually. Our passion for creating your Everyday Best drives us to continually manufacture beautiful, lasting, accessible products in over 50 countries globally.
