A designer of both environments and objects, Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance was born in Mende, France in 1975. Raised in a creative environment, he defines his own language with the help of forms which are at once natural, flexible, organic, fluid and structured. Trained in metal sculpture (ENSAAMA), he then moved into the sphere of 'Mobilier des Arts Décoratifs'.
Noé is interested in unusual projects: such as the Sketch restaurant in London, which has driven his career since 2002. Fresh from this landmark project, he founded the Néonata (meaning 'new birth') agency in 2003. In 2005, he gave Senderens a first class face-lift. In 2007, he was elected 'Créateur de l'Année' by the Maison & Objet show; that same year he was responsible for the interior decoration of the Maya Bar in Monaco, the Sénéquier in St Tropez and for the new corporate identity of the Air France lounges, in collaboration with Brand Image.
Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance works on projects varying in size from the very smallest to those on the grandest scale. He has designed a collection of furniture for Ceccotti, a light for Baccarat, a perfume bottle for Paco Rabanne, the 'Dessous Chics' collection for Zanotta, and a hotel in Marrakech.
