Forge de Laguiole
The design of the manufacturing site was entrusted to French designer Philippe Starck, and it's a perfection reflection of the company philosophy: to successfully combine tradition and innovation. Starck's architectural vision uses glass and aluminium, and features an 18m high gleaming blade soaring into the sky above Laguiole, a symbol of the activity and dynamism of the company.
Our expertise in forging our knives is drawn from the very soul of the Aubrac plateau - our inspiration. From the outset, Forge de Laguiole has worked to develop its manufacturing skills with respect for traditional know-how. Once a small knife used locally, the Laguiole knife has now become a cult object, a design reference synonymous with art de vivre and French gastronomy.
