Invisible Collection at Salon Art + Design NYC

Stories Destinations Invisible Collection at Salon Art + Design NYC

Celebrating the powerful energy of Salon Art + Design we were invited by The Spaceless Gallery to present selected works of Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance.

For this edition of Salon Art + Design at the Armory in New York, we collaborated with the Spaceless Gallery to present a curated exhibition of exceptional furniture pieces by Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance set in dialogue with the mesmerizing installations by Humans from 1982. The setting was intentionally sparse and simple so that visitors could focus on the unique works on show. This minimalistic approach enabled each piece to take center stage and be admired for all its powerful beauty. We appointed the space in two distinct areas. On one side the Lio Desk flanked by two iconic Giraffe chairs, both designs coming from Invisible Collection’s catalogue and designed respectively by Haymann Editions and Juliana Lima Vasconcellos. On the other side a circular rug defines the space on which are displayed two striking armchairs showing two different facets of Duchaufour-Lawrance’s vision. The Whisper armchair is a delicate presence of plush undulations, the Perros armchair is an assemblage of organic elements. The designs are paired with the fascinating Mineral Flower side table, hand-sculpted out of a single block of marble.

Presented as a fitting commentary on the notion of time, and the quality of timelessness often associated with design masterpieces such as Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance’s, two artworks by Humans since 1982 challenge the viewers. “A million Times 120,” is an extraordinary kinetic installation featuring a seamless choreography of time and movement. Comprising 120 meticulously synchronized clock hands, this captivating artwork explores the interplay between time, technology, and human perception.”ClockClock L (Tidal)” evokes the imagery of sunlight reflecting on water, with clock hands displaying wave-like cyclical and cumulative patterns, challenging conventional notions of time. Merging 24 analog clocks into a single digital display, “ClockClock L (Tidal)” presents a visually stunning representation of the passage of time.   

If you missed the exhibition at Salon NY, you can still discover and experience the unique designs of Noé Duchaufour-Lawrence on show in our galleries, and available on Invisible Collection 

Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance

Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance is a French designer who explores a wide range of disciplines and materials, which merge into a distinctive body of work. Born in the south of France in 1974, he followed in his father’s footsteps, by studying sculpture at the École nationale supérieure des arts appliqués et des métiers d’art, then earning his design diploma at the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. In addition to his spectacular private and commercial projects –including an iconic chalet in the Alps – Noé creates exceptional pieces of furniture in very limited editions. After discovering the breathtaking landscapes of Portugal and the country’s rich craft traditions, he has launched Made In Situ, a design studio that pays tribute to Portuguese storied artistry.
