Où sommes-nous

En 1987, grâce à l’engagement de passionnés, le village de Laguiole retrouve une forge.

Toutes, les étapes de la fabrication du célèbre couteau de Laguiole retournent au coeur de son village de naissance, dans l’étonnante manufacture Forge de Laguiole imaginée par le célèbre architecte-designer Philippe Starck.

Bâtie de verre et d’aluminium, celle-ci dresse dans le ciel du plateau de l’Aubrac, sa lame de 18 mètres de haut, symbole qui allie modernité, dynamisme tout en rappelant le savoir-faire ancestral qui fait l’identité du village et du territoire de Laguiole.

Près de 25 ans après, beaucoup d’eau a coulé dans la Selves (rivière de Laguiole). Elue Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant en 2008, Forge de Laguiole n’a cessé de faire évoluer sa fabrication, mettant au service de la tradition, les techniques les plus sophistiquées.
