Preserving the traditions and legacy of West African craftspeople, Maison Intègre’s debut collection has got us all swooning. Designed by founder Ambre Jarno in collaboration with French designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance, each piece has been handcrafted by West African master artisans using the Lost Wax Technique – a six thousand year old method whereby molten bronze is poured into a wax mould, which is then melted away to reveal a solid metal sculpture.
Jarno spent much of her childhood travelling through Africa, and later lived in Burkina Faso where she forged strong relationships with a host of local craftspeople – from waxers to welders. She established Maison Intègre in 2017 as a means of supporting the work of 15 Ouagadougou artisans while preserving the region’s ancient craft traditions, particularly that of the Lost Wax Technique. In 2018, she met Duchaufour-Lawrance who had also travelled extensively through Burkina Faso, and invited him to explore West Africa with her to uncover the symbols and stories of the region and see these techniques first-hand.
Embracing sensual curves and beautiful irregularities, the otherworldly collection is inspired by common shapes found in Tiebele – a traditional Kassena village located in the south of Burkina Faso – and includes lamps, tables, chairs and mask sconces. It’s also currently on display at New York Design Week, if you’re lucky enough to be in the area.
