Shelter

Inspired by the purity of nature, it is a sculpture, a place unto itself, where self-reflection comes naturally. Shelter armchair, designed by Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance, is a welcome pause, a place to restore bal- ance and energy to the body, in the moment where comfort and reflection prevail. A modern interpretation of the ideal chair for relaxation and read- ing, Shelter envelops, slowing time, transporting lightness and new, timeless lines to the space it inhabits. The backrest, with lateral headrests and center head cushion, completes the ergonomic luxury of the chair, perfect for a private niche at home, in waiting rooms or relaxation rooms in professional offices, public spaces and contract settings. The metal base is coordinated with the armchair’s leather or fabric upholstery. Com- plementary comfort provided by the matching footstool.

Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance

Designer and interior architect, Noé Duchaufour–Lawrance has defined his own language using natural shapes which are supple, organic, fluid and structured at the same time. A double passion for the material and for the shape embodied by a double faceted course of studies: first of all following a course in Sculpture on Metal (at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d’Art), then design at the Arts Décoratifs in Paris. In response to a creative family environment (his father was a sculptor), Noé Duchaufour–Lawrance very quickly displayed an unusual aesthetic quality, which stands out, beginning with the restaurant Sketch in Soho in 2002. He established his own design studio the following year and has henceforth seized each project as a real opportunity to define an aesthetic quality of his own, to design harmonious objects and areas with an aim to establish an emotional bond with nature.
