Open Polished Brass Edition | Signed & Numbered
Resulting from the immersive collaboration between Maison Intègre's team of metalsmiths in Burkina Faso and French designer Noè Duchaufour Lawrance, the Retro Lamp is a nod to the frenetic traffic of Ouagadougou. The designer hand-mold a quiet, sculptural interpretation of the busy rearview mirrors in Ouagadoudou's urban center. In tight collaboration with the local artisans, the designer sculpts his interpretation of the street light in wax, creating a sculptural and sensual shape later cast in bronze and hand-patinated by the metalsmiths.
Maison Intègre is an Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso-based bronze workshop fostering the long lineage of craft in West Africa. Founded by Ambre Jarno in 2017, Maison Intègre's Burkinabe artisans carry on the lost wax bronze casting technique that has largely remained unchanged since its inception millennia ago. The atelier invites contemporary designers to create individual pieces or cohesive collections. For Maison Intègre’s inaugural editions, Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance has created a series of seven sculpture pieces that embody and draw inspiration from the architecture and design of Burkina Faso.
