A brief history of Auboi cabinet making

Since 2005, Studio Units

Since his childhood, Martial has loved to paint and draw and try out different techniques.
Having little time to devote to his passion, he imagines a piece of furniture that allows him to gather all his equipment within reach.

In 2004, he creates a “workshop furniture” which regroups workspaces and drawers to store all his painting equipment. Seeing this concept, his friends painters encourage him to propose the furniture to a wider public.

A first advertisement in Artiste magazine confirms the desire for this piece of furniture.

The workshop furniture is made in Normandy in small series; each arrangement is personalised according to its recipient.

At our trade fairs, the multiple storage needs for creative activities are often mentioned. Today, the Meuble Atelier d’Art is a workshop furniture concept adapted to the graphic arts, yarn arts, creative hobbies but also to any activity or passion requiring well-structured storage.

 

Before the adventure of workshop furniture

From Martial Becquart to the Auboi companyAuboi was founded in 1995 by Martial Becquart. Since buying his first woodworking handset as a teenager, Martial Becquart could not get the idea out of his head that woodworking was his life’s choice. Very early on, he made a number of boxes, chests, chests of drawers with reclaimed wood, but nevertheless pursued studies and a career in industry.
In 1995 he decided to return to his passion and opened his Auboi cabinet making shop.

1995, Auboi cabinet making in Maulévrier Sainte Gertrude in Normandy.


Initially, Martial Becquart responds to various requests and creates libraries, beds, chests, kitchens, bathrooms, dressing rooms, stairs, portals and other shop fittings …..

                                                               

 

At the same time, he develops a very special concept of furniture that allows him to stand out and offer different types of furniture, “the Other Furniture”, those that do not yet exist, those that we have dreamed of.
What he likes is to analyse people’s needs, to study and design ergonomic, functional and of course aesthetic furniture. He is committed to the evolution of old techniques to adapt them to our times. Martial Becquart is a forerunner. Very early on, when computers had not yet entered our homes, he proposed furniture designed to integrate computer, central unit, …. screen into sober, refined furniture. Little by little, Martial Becquart developed his furniture line by combining two wood species, oak and ash.

Computer furniture

                        

The line is sober and elegant.

Shops entrust us with their fittings

        

The workshop of Maulévrier Sainte Gertrude is too small to honour these requests. In 2000, the cabinetmaker moves to a workshop in Yvetot.

 

 

In 2004, the adventure of workshop furniture begins. The furniture is produced in small series, again, there is a problem of space and the need for an assembly workshop arises.

 

For 15 years, the cabinetmaker adapts to this operation in two workshops.


Nowadays…

In 2018, the construction of a workshop bringing together the two begins, on a craft zone, near Yvetot, the Caux Multipôles zone, 160 rue de la Chapelle in Auzebosc, still in Normandy.

 

In order to offer robust and quality furniture, the Auboi company has remained faithful to the tradition of French cabinet making.

Auboi cabinet making is renowned for its ingenious, ergonomic and aesthetic furniture.
