Born in Jerusalem in 1977, Raphael Navot has made a name for himself collaborating with some of the top names in the design industry. From Venini to Swarovski, Renault to Cappellini – Navot’s multidisciplinary works in furniture, art, lighting and interiors combine timeworn traditions with contemporary vision and soul. Educated at The Design Academy Eindhoven, The Netherlands, Navot now lives and works in Paris as an independent, often collaborating, designer turning out his unique brand of dream-like designs. Shown here is just a small peek into his world…

De Bout (2017) is a collaboration between Navot and Oscar Ono Paris designed to protect “the natural quality and durability of this tradition[al] [endgrain style] while introducing an engineered contemporary version that allows an easy application similar to the typical ‘groove and tongue’ parquet system.”

represents one of Navot’s early explorations in flooring art. This piece finds its home in a Paris apartment and is built out of a series of rings – each one turned 5% clockwise to create a gentle vortex effect.

NAVOT’S…

hand painted Bruissement pattern (2016) for De Gournay applies 18th century eastern painting techniques to the abstract depiction of a sun-pierced European forest. Shown here, the organza silk wallpaper is applied to a simple folding screen.

THE TOH…

or Trigonometric Oval Hemisphere chandelier (2014) for Veronese pushes a basic oval form to its modular limits with a dense array of crystal prisms operating as a single sparkling unit. So characteristic of Navot’s work, it’s a nod to nature – where the simplest of forms belie a world of complexity…
