Les Ardoisiers
A Well-Drawn Career

Les Ardoisiers A Well-Drawn Career

From the rigor of a background in accountancy to the hardness of the slate, the frontier is very thin for Benoît Delmé, who has converted his passion for this uncommon rock into a sustainable craft deeply rooted in the territory of the Montagne Noire, in Dourgnes.

Since the day he realized that slate had a great potential for decoration purposes, Benoît Delmé has been specializing in the production of bespoke kitchens, bathrooms, sinks and other basins entirely made from this very material, which requires a specific cutting technique.

Les Ardoisiers took part in the Made in Town / Montagne Noire exhibition, which was held from October 21, 2015 to February 13, 2016 at Made in Town in Paris.

Jean-Philippe Trapp

Made in Metz. A graduate from the Institut de Commerce de Nancy (ICN Business School), where he attended a cross-disciplinary management program dedicated to the luxury industry, he initiated a study as part of his master’s thesis on the role of craftsmanship in this specific sector and its ability to contribute to the emergence of new production systems. It is when working at the Institut National des Métiers d’Art that he discovered the true wealth of the French heritage. He now wishes to educate the public about local know-how from all over the world and their cultural roots, through a selection of diverse projects in the fields of fashion, design and art.
