Retro Lamp II
Resulting from the immersive collaboration between Maison Intègre’s team of metalsmiths in Burkina Faso and French designer Noè Duchaufour Lawrance, the Retro Lamp is a nod to the frenetic traffic of Ouagadougou. The designer hand-mold a quiet, sculptural interpretation of the busy rearview mirrors in Ouagadoudou’s urban center. In tight collaboration with the local artisans, the designer sculpts his interpretation of the street light in wax, creating a sculptural and sensual shape later cast in bronze and hand-patinated by the metalsmiths.
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."
