A totemic object and culture element anchored in the DNA of Hervet Manufacturier, the Vedette skateboard offers speed and agility for cruising on asphalt. Its fine pointed silhouette is a symbol of the 70s, and its small size allows it to be discreetly carried everywhere and to be able to be stored in small spaces, unless exposed as a piece of art. Composed of 7 plies of wood, Vedette cruiserboards are collectable for a tour of the world of precious wood species.

This family has been able to transmit its know-how and its passion for woodworking from generation to generation. A legacy that has been enriched and refined over time to achieve excellence.
Being young, the two cousins Hervet, Cédric (1974) and Nicolas (1976), already inseparable and creatives, began to make their own furniture. Then they mastered by taking different paths in life, a means for everyone to assert themselves and to accomplish themselves into the Hervet line.
Honored by the industry and distinguished on numerous occasions for his work, Nicolas remained in his core business. After the Boulle School of Applied Arts in Paris Cédric took time to distance himself from the wood industry to get closer to the world of music and develop his creative vision as Creative Director for Daft Punk.
In 2008, Nicolas designed an exceptional desk for his cousin, the founding piece, the starting point of the adventure.
At that time Cédric Hervet needed a quality, ergonomic and elegant piece of furniture for his post-production works, especially with the legendary robots duet.
This unique piece reflects the perfect collaboration between the two men. It was the trigger. From this masterpiece was born the idea of HERVET Manufacturier.
By using this signature that now the two Hervet cousins design furniture under meticulous respect for the traditional techniques of carpentry, cabinetmaking, marquetry, and upholstery, using with measure what the planet earth offers as the most beautiful and durable: exotic woods, fine quality leathers, metals, ...
HERVET Manufacturier creates and manufactures, under reasonable quantities, furniture and decorative objects, inimitable design, influenced by the visions of anticipation of the previous century. Creations that write step by step the vision of an ideal world, projected in an undetermined future time.
