What do you love most about your business, La Clef de Voûte?
Our desire to craft beautiful things, and to make them in a different way. We are always refining our techniques and seeking out new ideas. We try to pinpoint exactly what the client wants and deliver something durable, innovative and stylish.
What do you love about your job?
The trade is constantly evolving to keep in step with each new technology and material that hits the market. Our architects, designers and clients make it possible for us to create a wide range of unique pieces from all sorts of materials. Nothing is ever routine; the objects we craft are one-of-a-kind.
What is the most memorable project you worked on?
The Bic house was an amazing feat. The plans were drawn to our specifications and the whole thing took us three years; it was our biggest project by far. So many of our creations are scattered throughout the house—they’re in the kitchen, the bathrooms, the stairwell, the walk-in closet, the cellar. We even designed a heated exterior table. When it comes to a project like this, our task transcends woodworking. We’re rearranging space.
