Steaven RichardAfter traditional blacksmith training and 10 years working in Europe, Steaven Richard set up his first workshop in Paris. Here he met artists, sculptors and designers and developed his artistic approach. Certain renowned French interior designers were already incorporating his range of patinas and finishes. In 2013 Karl Lagerfeld commissioned a textured laminated silver nickel parquet floor for his studio within Chanel, an exceptional project requiring development of cutting-edge tools and techniques now under patent. Artistic lamination – a revolutionary concept – was born! Inspired by innovation, new challenges and creative exchange, Steaven continues to experiment and open up new aesthetic fields.
An innovative and experimental approachThe Atelier Steaven Richard opened in Paris in 2001. An innovative, experimental approach, in answer to the demands of architects and designers, led to the expansion of the company. The workshop and design office later moved to Valenton, 30 minutes from the city centre, to facilitate larger project development. The team of blacksmiths and metalworkers transforms all types of metal, mostly for international projects. Associating traditional skills with digital technology has been a great leap forward. The Atelier Steaven Richard offers all the design and technical solutions required by your projects.
RecognitionThe Steaven Richard Workshop was awarded the Living Heritage (EPV) label in 2011. The Living Heritage label is the French governmental recognition for excellence in artisanal and industrial craftsmanship. The company has also been a member of the Grands Ateliers de France since 2011, a trade organization of over 60 artistic craft workshops whose excellence has been recognized by their peers.
