Anna Le Corno

FaroucheWood marquetry maker

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.


Defined by its experimental approach, the Farouche studio creates furniture and panelling ranging from unique pieces to small series. Anna uses traditional techniques to create the designs, as well as those enabled by laser-cutting technologies. The studio functions with two contrasting machines: the laser machine and the ancient press.
