Raphael Navot

I like natural materials, reworked and pushed to their limits. Anything that speaks to the tactile beings that we are, made of flesh and bone.”

          Multidisciplinary Raphael Navot identifies himself as a “non-industrial designer.” Navot reinterprets the combination of traditional craftsmanship and fine materials through a 21st century lens. Drawn to raw and refined textures, his inspiration is mainly derived from the materials themselves. Viewing organic shapes as a universal language, Navot masters the subtle nuances of texture, form, palette, and material.

          Born in 1977 in Jerusalem, Navot graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Conceptual Design in 2003. After graduation, Navot established his own studio in Paris to explore design and interior architecture. His first major project in Paris, David Lynch’s Club Silencio (2011), earned him international recognition. His subsequent notable projects include the design of Hotel National des Arts et Métiers in Paris (2017), and the library and art gallery at the Domaine des Etangs estate in Massignac, France (2018). Navot has collaborated with brands such as Cappellini, Venini, and Roche Bobois for which he won the 2020 Elle Deco International Design award. Raphael Navot was named Maison&Objet Designer of the Year in 2023.

          He lives and works in Paris, France.
