We have been imagining achievements in partnership with S.T.Dupont since 2009, based on their pens and lighters. We started with the architectural models, a field of expression that is close to my heart.
Since its creation, the Maison S.T.Dupont® has been creating unique products in precious materials. Famous crowned heads, politicians, celebrities, all have marched in this French brand since 1872 to order customized travel cases or personalized products. What has more to me is the technical quality and reliability of their systems, be it pens or lighters.
All models of our collaboration are limited to 35 pieces and the first architectural-based collection was a success because they were all sold in record time, which accelerated collaboration with S.T.Dupont®. After the success of the architectural pens, we explored other themes such as Chinese zodiacal animals or a pen in collaboration with Eiichirō Oda the creator of the Manga One Piece.
In terms of image, it is a House that manufactures in France and which is the symbol of quality and luxury in the French. It is always enriching to pool know-how with a House that has 150 years of existence.
"From our first collaboration will be born in 2009 an exceptional and exclusive series of pens where the Art of writing S.T. Dupont® is reinterpreted by Philippe Tournaire, a first for S.T.Dupont, a new way of expressing oneself for Philippe Tournaire.
It was on this occasion that I met Philippe Tournaire. An artist at his fingertips, nourished by his many travels and his knowledge, both traditional and technological, it is always a real enrichment to exchange with him.
We continue 6 years later to collaborate with the same passion for ever more exceptional products ... "
