Raphael Navot

Raphael Navot, a Paris-based designer, was born in 1977 in Jerusalem, Israel. He completed his Bachelor’s degree in Conceptual Design from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2003. Following his graduation, Navot moved to Paris, where he began delving into design and interior architecture. He developed a distinctive style that combines the use of noble, raw materials with traditional, handcrafted techniques. Navot’s work is significantly shaped by his close association with some of Europe’s finest ateliers, and his custom-designed spaces, furniture, and objects are often the result of collaborations with these artisans, reflecting their mindset, methods, and expertise.

Navot’s diverse portfolio includes various projects like the creative direction and interior design of David Lynch’s renowned nightclub Silencio in Paris, a sophisticated line of End Grain flooring for Oscar Ono, and a series of artisanal carpets for Galerie Diurne. In 2018, he extended his artistic flair and craftsmanship to Roche Bobois, creating an exclusive furniture line. Navot has been involved in significant interior design projects like the Hotel National des Arts et Métiers in Paris, and the library and art gallery at the Domaine des Etangs estate in Massignac, France. These projects allowed him to oversee everything from space conceptualization and design to custom furniture and fittings. He has applied this comprehensive approach to recent endeavors, including a new luxury hotel in Cannes and private residences in Tel Aviv.
