Stéphane Parmentier started his career in fashion business. After having worked for Lanvin, Hervé Léger and Karl Lagerfeld, he has been director of the women’s ready-to-wear section for Givenchy and artistic director for Montana while launching his own line under his name.
In 2000, he creates his interior decoration agency. He made projects in various regions of the world including Paris, London, Ibiza, the Côte d’Azur, Geneva and Miami as well as the interior design of 1st and business class cabins for Singapore Airlines. In 2005, in Paris, Tools Galerie shows his collection named « Petites architectures ». He is presently preparing for Christofle a collection « Maison » and lightings expected for 2011.
In 2010, Stéphane Parmentier creates the collection "Lava": a series of stools in Volvic stone, a dark black lava, well-known for its use in the making of the cathedral of Clermont Ferrand in the Auvergne region. The stools were conceived as hybrid objects that can be used as occasional tables, bedsides or simply stools. Their forms were inspired by the architecture of the airports from the 70's (control towers, satellites of Roissy airport) gathering two domains that inspired the designer throughout his carreer: architecture and aviation.
