Paola Navone x Sumant Jayakrishnan
The flavour of salt.
The smell of spices.
The pleasure of a sweet taste.
These simple emotions linked to flavours are universal.
Through centuries and continents.
They bind together people of all latitudes.
They have beautiful colours and shapes.
The SPICY, the SALTED, the SWEET
They express a journey full of suggestions and poetry where everyone can find a piece of themselves.
Because the future of design is FEELINGS.
Straightforward, a dreamer and eclectic: her mind and soul are a combination of flavours and colours of the South of the world - known, loved and lived - together with the taste and forms of the West, rich in traditions, open and continuously in movement.
All of this produces her untiring curiosity in her research for matters and materials, forms and structures. In her research for the present, the past and the future.
