An extensive cabinetry collection designed by Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance that includes sideboards, chests of drawers, coffee tables, a bedside table, TV units and side tables, Estampe is subtle, yet impactful. Thoughtfully crafted proportions and an understated juxtaposition of curved and straight lines are signatures of the Estampe collection. Taking its name from artistic prints – and specifically inspired by those of Hokusai and Hiroshige. Pieces feature front and side panels in either natural, argile-stained, or anthracite-stained oak sawn oak veneer; thinned and rounded angled drawers, and fixed linoleum tops. The front panels have solid-oak edging that is cut at a 45-degree angle and have very thin lateral volumes. The corners are rounded at the tops only, to evoke the corners of the table top and create an elegant detail. The pressed linoleum top is slightly raised and appears to float in its oak frame. Finely crafted details bring this collection to life.
Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance was born in France, where he also studied design. His works are deeply infused with his philosophy of connecting humans to their environment. He is focused on fluidity and structure, natural, organic and flexible elements that he believes should form a harmonised object for users - answering a need without creating more. His belief in the emotional connection between humans and objects pushes him to produce works that are vehicles for both expression and meanings, retaining fluidity yet without forgoing functionality and simplicity.
