DESIGN BY PHILIPPE STARCK
The renowned French architect and designer has been part of the FORGE DE LAGUIOLE
project since its inception. After designing the FORGE DE LAGUIOLE
factory in 1987, Starck went on to conceive the Forge’s first boutiques. He was also
the first to bring his vision to the task of updating the traditional Laguiole.
His purification of line and use of polished aluminum gives his interpretation of the
Laguiole knife a resolutely modern appearance. As soon as it appeared, this knife
was chosen by the Colbert Committee for exhibition at the Cooper Hewitt Museum
as part of the “Art of Living in France: 1789 to 1989”.
Today, the aluminum pocket knife by STARCK is part of the permanent collection
“Design at MOMA” of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
