Taming a wild material

  • • Anna is inspired by nature’s beauty and wilderness
  • • She originally trained as an architect
  • • She creates custom pieces and her own collection

One of the reasons Anna Le Corno moved from architecture to cabinetmaking is because she can express her creativity in each stage of producing an object. “I definitely benefited from my architectural work, but I realised I wanted to fully express myself from the beginning to the end of a project,” she says. After training at France’s Ecole Boulle, she founded Farouche to create contemporary fine furniture, and enjoys collaborating with a variety of artists and artisans. She emphasises the role of chance in her artistic designs and how the veining of the laser cutting can contrast and highlight the wood’s natural veining. This interplay fascinates her.
