Highlights from 20 years of furniture and product design by leading French luminary Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance
Designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance's (born 1974) training in both sculpture and furniture design is evident throughout his eclectic body of work. His architectural designs, seen in places such as the Sketch restaurant in London or the Air France business lounge at Paris-Charles de Gaule airport, evoke the natural movement of water and wind with curved edges and smooth surfaces.
Each piece of furniture in Duchaufour-Lawrance's oeuvre, whether it be a chair, lamp or sofa, is characterized by a clear attention to the piece's overall dramatic effect as well as a fine craftsmanship in every detail. Most recently, he collaborated with the crystal manufacturer Saint-Louis to create the Folia collection of luxury lighting fixtures and furniture.
This publication presents a number of Duchaufour-Lawrance's most striking designs, and reveals his new project in which he deftly combines design with craftmanship.
