The projects he undertakes are highly challenging and his first commission, the 'Sketch' restaurant in London, brought him international recognition in 2002. For this project he set out to create a den for urbanites in search of new experiences and developed five distinct spaces (2 restaurants, 2 bars, a tea room both modern and cosy) in collaboration with renowned designers Marc Newson, Jürgen Bey.

Following the immediate success of the 'Sketch', Noe was called on to carry out interior architecture and furniture design projects in Italy, the country which is a ‘must' for designers and editors. And of course, other countries including Japan and France have since offered him some high-profile projects.
Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance graduated from the metal Sculpture department of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d'Art, as well as from the Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs de Paris.

He has always sought to instill an artistic approach into each of his projects. Anish Kapoor, Toyo Ito, or the architect designer Carlo Mollino are amongst his favorite designers. The latter, almost 50 years ahead of his time, abandoned the supremacy of 'style' in favour of a fresh and more open approach to design.

Since 2002, Noé has accumulated numerous international collaborations. He designed the 3rd Culture Shop in Ginza, Tokyo, for Azzedine Alaïa's retailer and Manolo Blahnik in Japan.
In 2005 he relooked the interior of Alain Senderens' Michelin starred restaurant, ex Lucas Carton. In parallel he completed the TAD concept store in Milan, an impressive 800sqm flagship store on Via Statuto.
In Paris, Noe designed the panoramic restaurant 'Deli-Cieux' which opened in 2006 on the roof terrace of the Printemps Haussmann department store.

In 2007, the designer completed the interior design of the Maya Bar in Monte-Carlo, where influences from his Asian travels abound.

Recently he has been appointed to work on the development of the new image of the Air France Lounges in collaboration with Desgrippes Gobé. The first of these lounges opened in July 2007 in Tokyo.

Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance has also worked with several object and furniture editors including Ceccotti Collezioni - for whom he designed the Manta collection - or Zanotta - for whom he imagined the Dessouschic table, with a fresh take on French furniture history.
Finally, Noé has designed an exclusive new line of furnitures for Ceccotti, to be unveiled in the Milan fair 2008.
