In 2018, the architect Alireza Razavi and his team entrusted our upholsterers with the construction of a contemporary sofa set for a superb Parisian apartment.
Architects have a simple objective: have the best team mates, craftsmen, engineers work on materializing their designs. Without these people and their skills, ideas are mere intentions. Jouffre is one of these precious partners. A demanding group of the highest standard and rigor, gifted with the ability to understand the materiality sought by the architect. A team of men and women, driven by a common spirit: crafting the best possible pieces, dedicating the same attention to each project. I feel blessed we have come across their path.> Visit website
Alireza Razavi is the founder of Studio Razavi Architecture. Their work is based on a fundamental principle: the delicate balance between engineering and architectural cultures. As the studio says, "architecture draws on the rituals of everyday life". Their approach to space is hence determined by a rigorous understanding of existing relationships between technique and culture, free of stylistic limitations. "From the design of a table to the design of a building, from the study of a project to the execution plans, from Paris to New York via London, everything that bears the mark of Alireza Razavi blows excellence.

In a private apartment in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, an octagonal room is emerging. In this living room, a duo of sofas take the spotlight. Two frames in solid walnut, V-shaped, open up the living space. These two elements were designed by Studio Razavi Architecture, then developed by Jouffre and manufactured by our upholsterers in Lyon. The chenille fabric from Donghia textile, used for both furniture, was woven in a dense manner, intertwined with a bright looped thread, to obtain a depth as well as a touch of brightness.
This room designed by the parisian-based studio is composed of a Clessidra table manufactured by Blanc Carrare; a Demeter floor lamp manufactured by GAU Lighting and a ceramic sculpture by Matthew Chambers.
We are proud to have participated in the realization of this project and thanks Studio Razavi Architecture for their trust.
