Ateliers SP to foster
passion for creativity

Sharing a passion for art and design Sputnik Partners establishes Ateliers SP to support Artisans d’Art of Les Grands Ateliers de France and promote excellence in craftsmanship.

Known for preserving and restoring cultural heritage, artisans d’art possess unique know-how and skills passed down from generations within their communities. They create timeless products that maintain their traditions, express their culture and keep their identity. With a vision to ensure that the artisans d’art communicate their activities and advocate the art of workmanship, as well as to contribute to the continuity of their traditions and expertise, Sputnik Partners establishes Ateliers SP. Its primary focus is to work with artisans d’art to find the most special technique and deliver exceptional quality and experiences by creating one-off artistic pieces.

Ateliers SP grew out of Sputnik Partners’ previous collaborations with artisans d’art to highlight the diversity and uniqueness of artisanal skills. The collaborations clearly demonstrated the need for a more comprehensive and dedicated approach, which is now possible with Ateliers SP. They encompassed a design created by Sputnik Partners’ team in collaboration with the artist Marina Fedorova, and the implementation was realized with selected French artisans of excellence to deliver one-of-a-kind design objects.

Under the impetus of Jean Bergeron, former president of the Comité Colbert, and Laurence Bonnet, author of the art book Mains et Merveilles – les artisans de la qualité à Paris, this Association is now a selection of high-quality craftsmen, chosen for their know-how, their ethics, their respect for the object and the client, in restoration as well as in creation in the handicrafts of the decorative arts and art of living. Nowadays, there are 64 Houses and Artisans representing 100 Trades in Decorative Arts and Art of Living, such as jewelry goldsmithing, wood, leather, graphic arts, light, metal, stone, textile, glass, and others.
