Since 1860, the Simond brand has been designing and producing equipment for adventures. Today, we're here to support you from our Mont Blanc showroom.
A dynamic space for research, innovation and production, it embodies the dedication of Manufacturing to the perpetuation of the expertise in mountaineering equipment.
It's also the materiality of the metal inside and outside the building which was expressed as a reminder of the culture of the company, which was originally a blacksmiths company.
To build Simon, Patriarche took on several technical challenges, from the sloping terrain to the difficult weather conditions. Yet, the building guarantees great views for the team and presents a strong image that stops passers-by in their tracks thanks to its complex and unusual shapes. Simond is, amongst other factors, able to take on the challenges of the industry 4.0 by flexibly housing the production workshops, and the team offices for our research, development and product distribution divisions.
