Noll used wood as his only media and mean of expression, using it for his elementary power and discovering all its virtues, charms, beauties and reactions, through his sculpted works and experimentations. He used to say: “I don’t kill the wood, I obey it”. Following the nature and nuances of the exotic or rustic wood, each of his works was directly inspired by nature, authentic and unique. He treated wood with passion and respect and refused to “inflict the eternal wound of iron”: his pieces of furniture were made without any hinge or nail and convey an impression of primitive force and timeless beauty. Noll’s organic forms blur the line between sculpture and furniture.
Through his instinctive approach, Noll created a new language, made of abstract forms, solid volumes and powerfully rounded shapes, looking for answers in the wood “that seemed to contain some lost secret for him.”
