Metallic dome – Moscow
In an Art Nouveau building in the heart of Moscow
This metallic dome towers above an “Art Nouveau” building located in the heart of Moscow. Our goal for this opulent-looking building was two-fold in erecting a dome to cover the turret: bringing light into the offices that look out onto the cupola, and maintaining the harmony of this former printing works, now restored.
For the main structure, we used steel profiles and required curved glass – We then sanded and metallised our work, and finally powder-coated it.
This project required us to pre-assemble the materials in our workshop, to ensure perfect installation. We then monitored the instalment, with help from local workers.
Staircase combining wrought iron and marble – Japan
An artistic project with a French touch, including the manufacture of a staircase and stringers adorned with marble. This splendid staircase was further enriched with an iron-worked banister and railing. The steel plate spun lettering was gilded with gold leaf. Our creation won Crézé an appreciation certificate from the customer, for its skill and involvement in this sumptuous project.
For Crézé, the fact of working internationally enables us, first and foremost, to promote our know-how, and know-how in a more global sense. French craftsmanship is often associated with quality, tradition and authenticity. Working abroad allows us to reinforce this image and to promote French know-how internationally.
Secondly, working abroad gives us the opportunity to collaborate with local craftsmen and create unique products by combining different craft traditions. Above all, it’s a human adventure, exposing us to new cultures, languages and professional practices. It allows us to broaden our personal and professional horizons, enabling us to learn and grow as craftspeople. What’s more, we can acquire new skills and techniques by working in a different environment. Regulations may require us to adapt our crafts to suit local preferences.
