François Labbé, company’s founder.

Based in Nice since 1979, F. Labbé Company has grown steadily over the decades. In 1984 the company began to take off and is nowadays a major player in the life of the local construction industry.
Renowned entrepreneur, artist, blacksmith, locksmith and talented metalworker, François Labbé was a bit all at once. But he was above all a passionate researcher of new techniques, and became a recognized specialist in the design and manufacture of mobile metal structures: turntables, rotating houses, hillside lifts and inclined elevators.

François Labbé then became the provider, the assistant and then partner and friend of most of the New Realists and Carvers artists from the School of Nice. F. Labbé Company has manufactured (among others) the Arc of Bernar Venet erected in the gardens Albert 1er in Nice, The Venus And The Obliteration and The Archimedes of Sosno, or the colorful Dissemination of Farhi in Nice.

When François Labbé passed away in 1993, it was a blow for F. Labbé Company and more broadly for the entire construction industry and artists in Nice. Still, the company continues its perpetual ascent to become an iron craftsman company and metalworker leader in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (PACA).
