In 1953, S.T. Dupont created established a special division within its Faverges factory to handle custom orders. Now, the company has created a new line that harkens back to the days of the S.T. Dupont’s roots, aptly named Atelier.

It’s the French word for workshop and the new lighter centers around vintage styling. The Atelier Collection uses a Ligne 2 lighter which features the old S.T. Dupont logo, the date 1953 on the side and the winged wheel, which used to be a part of the company’s older designs.
