Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance

Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance was born in 1974 in Mende (France). The projects he undertakes are highly challenging and his first
commission, the ‘Sketch’ restaurant in London, brought him international recognition in 2002. For this project he set out to create
a den for urbanites in search of new experiences and developed five distinct spaces (2 restaurants, 2 bars, a tea room both
modern and cosy) in collaboration with renowned designers Marc Newson, Jürgen Bay. Following the immediate success of the
‘Sketch’, Noé was called on to carry out interior architecture and furniture design projects in Italy, the country which is a ‘must’
for designers and editors. And of course, other countries including Japan and France have since offered him some high-profile
projects. Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance graduated from the metal Sculpture department of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts
Appliqués et des Métiers d'Art, as well as from the Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs de Paris. He has always sought to instill
an artistic approach into each of his projects. Anish Kapoor, Toyo Ito, or the architect designer Carlo Mollino are amongst his
favorite designers. Since 2002, Noé has accumulated numerous international collaborations. In 2005 he relooked the interior of
Alain Senderens' Michelin starred restaurant, ex Lucas Carton. He completed the TAD concept store in Milan. In Paris, Noé designed
the panoramic restaurant 'Deli-Cieux' located on the roof terrace of the Printemps Haussmann department store. In 2007, the
designer completed the interior design of the Maya Bar in Monte-Carlo. Recently he has been appointed to work on the development
of the new image of the Air France Lounges in collaboration with Desgrippes Gobé. The first of these lounges opened in July 2007
in Tokyo. Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance has also worked with several object and furniture editors including Ceccotti Collezioni or
Zanotta. Finally, Noé has designed an exclusive new line of lamps/light installations for Baccarat.
