Paola Navone’s creations are at once playful, whimsical, nomadic, and beautiful. The Milan-based designer travels all over the world, drawing inspiration from Asia to Africa, for the likes of the Landscape Panda collection for Cappellini, private residences in France, and COMO Point Yamu hotel in Phuket.
These projects and many more are on display in a new tome from Pointed Leaf Press. Titled Tham ma da: The Adventurous Interiors of Paola Navone, the book is a visual feast of Navone’s work on products, homes and hospitality spaces. Tham ma da, by the way, is Thai for ‘every day.’
With words by Spencer Bailey, Surface magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, the book also offers an insight into Navone’s thought process and inspirations.
