Corvo reveals its story with the discovery of each angle, facet and curve, illuminating the idea that craft and the human hand are the hallmarks of modern in the twenty-first century.

Ideas that appear to be simple and effortless are many times the most difficult to execute, and the creation of the Corvo chair was no exception. Duchaufour-Lawrance’s process in developing Corvo was to first design it in carbon fiber and then work in reverse to reinterpret it in wood.

“I didn’t want to focus on the limitations of wood, but rather to explore what I could create with the freedom and versatility of composites,” he explains. “This approach resulted in a chair that was more challenging to execute, but hopefully one that is noticed and appreciated.”

Two experienced sample-makers worked for more than four weeks to produce the first prototype.
