Description

With the Y lamp, French designer Noé Duchaufour Lawrance offers his sculptural and contemporary interpretation of the Lobi ladder — a traditional and prevalent object used in West Africa, particularly in the Dogon and Lobi cultures. The ladder is traditionally carved from a single piece of wood with a bifurcated end, creating a Y shape. Inspired by the beauty and the simplicity of this purely functional object, Duchaufour Lawrance translated the traditional shape into a symbolic totem of light.

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.

Maison Intègre

Maison Intègre is an Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso-based bronze workshop fostering West Africa's long lineage of craftsmanship. 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.

In 2022, the studio built a comprehensive workshop to support the artisanship of fifteen artisans, a meaningful step to protect the craft traditions and provide a livelihood for the artisans. Jarno cultivates dialogue between the artisans of Maison Intègre and bronzesmiths of her native France, who have had the opportunity to visit the workshop in Ouagadougou to share their respective time-honored techniques. 
 
Maison Intègre invites contemporary designers to develop pieces or cohesive collections. The inaugural collection brings the artisans in conversation with Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance to create a collection of seven sculpture pieces that embody and draw inspiration from the vernacular architecture and design of Burkina Faso.
