Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance

Kassena Plain Br/I



“Inspired by the traditional structures in Tiebélé, a village in the south of Burkina Faso, this table is a homage to the vernacular architecture of the Kassena people who settled in the region in the 15th century. The typical Kassena dwellings consist of an oblong-shaped structure with slightly angled walls and flat roofs used to dry cereals. The structures are composed of mud, brick, and stone. Together with international designer Noé Duchauffour Lawrance, the artisans of Maison Intègre have translated the culturally relevant symbol into bronze.

Maison Intègre is an Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso-based bronze workshop fostering the long lineage of craft in West Africa. Founded by Ambre Jarno in 2017, Maison Intègre’s Burkinabe artisans carry on the lost wax bronze casting technique that has largely remained unchanged since its inception millennia ago. The atelier invites contemporary designers to create individual pieces or cohesive collections.”

Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance


"French designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance has built a cohesive body of work across disciplines and materials with a design vocabulary deeply rooted in nature. 

Born in the south of France in 1974, he followed the footsteps of his father, with academic training in sculpture from the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d’Art, followed by a degree in furniture design from the renowned Les Arts Décoratifs.

Noé approaches design with an instinct and sensibility that gives form to projects ranging from architecture to furniture, interiors to bespoke, and limited edition collections. His sculptural work embodies both inspirations drawn from historical art periods and a timeless simplicity with pure, contemporary lines.

Noé splits his time between designing furniture and launching a project in Lisbon named Made in Situ. Since 2020, Noé has collaborated with the bronze artisans of Maison Intégre in Burkino Faso to create a collection of seven sculptural pieces inspired by vernacular architecture."
