Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance
designer + interior architect

For those at MAISON + OBJET in Paris this week, Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance's design work will be in abundance. Some might know of Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance's work from Galerie BSL in Paris. Noe designed the interiors of this avant-garde showroom in Paris for Director Béatrice Saint-Laurent. After receiving an email, I began looking at some of his recent interior projects only to be transfixed by this interior in the French Alps. A monochrome palate reinforced with the beauty of concrete and wood, an updated version of a ski chalet. Lines that bend and trace the space of the room, a fireplace, a portal of warmth and energy. Transcendental living. - David John

Chalet Beranger: St Martin de Belleville
French Alps, completed 2011

"Far from the geometric construction methods of a traditional chalet, the interior architecture of this family home is a domestic landscape whose forms emerge from the ground like small functional mountains rising from a valley. Resolutely fluid and modern, the result is a set of lines and organic forms composed around a wooden ribbon. A large, main room is set above the whole construction, defining the central point of the chalet where the family comes together around a warm hearth."

"Sketch" London - 2002 : "A Victorian facade in the heart of London which reveals nothing of what goes on inside. Sketch is the place for sensory, human experiences
a voyage in space and time in a listed, 18th century building."

"Designer and interior architect, Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance has defined his own language using natural shapes which are supple, organic, fluid and structured at the same time. A double passion for the material and for the shape embodied by a double faceted course of studies: first of all following a course in Sculpture on Metal (at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d'Art), then design at the Arts Décoratifs in Paris.

In response to a creatively rich past (his father was a sculptor), Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance very quickly displayed an unusual aesthetic quality, which stands out, beginning with the restaurant Sketch in Soho in 2002 where he served as artistic director, and his interior design was soon acclaimed by the international scene with his organic and urban style.
