Steaven Richard is a metalwork craftsman. He opened his Paris-based Atelier in 2001, when he and his team decided to focus on experimenting and innovating. He has been honing his professional skills for over ten years and has always used his pioneering approach to enrich the trade’s heritage of traditional techniques. He created a now patented innovative metalwork technique: artistic lamination. Using specific techniques, Steaven transforms materials, giving them a whole new dimension: he draws inspiration from the organic world with wood or vegetal effects, and decorates brass and iron with textile motifs. His expertise in chemical processes also allows him to create an infinite palette of textures, patterns and colors.
Rémy Martin’s desire was to combine the world of cognac and its iconic decanter with the world of an extraordinary artist.
For this partnership, artist Steaven Richard invented a way to infuse brass and create a unique golden patina featuring the Rémy Martin XO motif, giving the decanter new reflections and a new texture. The work that Steaven produced for XO in his atelier was designed to be a work of art in its own right. Through a technique called anamorphosis, the artist reveals the iconic Rémy Martin centaur. The result is a unique piece full of strength and mystery, at the crossroads between tradition and innovation.
