ROMAN GARDENS

Borghese Sofa is a sculptural piece directly inspired and named after the pine trees of the Villa Borghese gardens in Roma. The designer’s preference for organic shapes readily translates as a standout modernist statement piece.

NOE DUCHAUFOUR LAWRANCE

THE DESIGNER

Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance is a French designer working across a wide range of disciplines and materials to create a unified body of work with a narrative deeply rooted in nature. 

Born in the south of France in 1974, he followed the footsteps of his father, with an 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.

Fueled by a rich creative background, Noé approaches design with an instinct and sensibility that gives form to projects ranging from architecture to furniture, interiors to bespoke, limited edition collections. His sculptural work showcases a respect for the past, combined with a simplicity of line and an honest desire to create pieces that last. 

Installed in Portugal since 2018, Noé splits his time in developing collectible design furniture, and launching an auto-edited project in Lisbon named Made in Situ (opening in 2020).
