If you haven't heard of LR Paris, that's because it's a design and production studio specifically for custom gifts for extremely exclusive clients. The French company, which was founded half a century ago, has worked with and for storied names like the Oval Office, Plaza Hotel, Guggenheim, Goldman Sachs, Graff and Harvard University, to name just a few.

This year, the creative studio has brought on American industrial designer Frederick McSwain as its new Chief Creative Officer, who aims to bring his knowledge on cutting-age production techniques and a network of emerging talents in design from his past experiences in Poltrona Frau and Cappellini.

For a French company with tradition, hiring an American designer is both an opportunity and a risk. "As an industrial designer, I understand the importance of objects performing a function -- where utility has value," McSwain says. He adds, "[but] at LR Paris, I am able to create product that is emotional, because giving a gift is emotional." It will be interesting to see what the New Age designer brings to the Parisian name.

Now with McSwain at the helm, LR Paris is designing custom tea sets for the Baccarat Hotel, candles for Harry Winston and more. You can explore and learn more about LR Paris here.
