Born in the South of France in 1975, Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance is both a designer of objects and interiors. Following in the footsteps of his father, a sculptor, at an early stage he took an artistic orientation. Brought up in a creative atmosphere, he soon defined his own language: using natural shapes, aiming at smooth and organic lines, which remain fluid and structured at the same time. With a degree in Metal Sculpture from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d’Art in his pocket, he then entered the Furniture section of the renowned school Les Arts Décoratifs. Thanks to a rich creative background, he explored new boundaries and rapidly became involved in unusual projects: one after the other, they allowed him to define and create his own aesthetics and style. Thanks to the worldwide recognition achieved by some of his projects, in 2003 he set up his own creative studio, Neonata, meaning “New Birth”.He has been working with Zanotta since 2005.
