Paris-based designer, Raphael Navot was born in Jerusalem, Israel, in 1977. In 2003, he graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven with a Bachelor’s degree in Conceptual Design. Post graduation, he settled in the French capital, where he began to explore the disciplines of design and interior architecture, arriving at a unique juncture where the creative process is informed by the employment of noble, raw materials and traditional, man-made techniques.


Navot’s proximity to some of Europe’s best ateliers and craftsmean has greatly influenced his work and today his bespoke spaces, furniture, and objects, are realized in collaboration with these artisans, whose handcrafted approach and unique savoir-faire resonates within each piece. Vastly diverse, his portfolio of work includes projects such as the creative direction and interior design of the celebrated Parisian nightclub Silencio, a highly technical line of End Grain flooring for Oscar Ono and a collection of artisanal carpets for Galerie Diurne. More recently, interior design projects, such as the Hotel National des Arts et Métiers, in Paris, and the library and art gallery at the Domaine des Etangs estate, in Massignac, France, have provided Navot with an opportunity to execute everything from the concept and design of the space to the custom furniture and fittings. Each project and element exists as a unique and challenging body of work, defined by a return to the purity of form and an exceptional regard for high craft.
