Tham ma da: Paola Navone - Book
Embodies the conceptual approach of Italian architect and designer Paola Navone’s work.
By Spencer Bailey
Tham ma da – Thai for “everyday” – embodies the conceptual approach of Italian architect and designer Paola Navone’s work. She takes the ordinary and presents it in a new and exciting way. Influenced by her travels all over the world, particularly to Asia and Africa, Navone scours the globe for inspiration. She has collaborated with major furniture and home accessory brands such as Crate & Barrel, Baxter, Alessi, Gervasoni, and Cappellini. Tham ma da gives an in-depth tour of Navone’s most thrilling and bold interiors – from hotels in Miami and Phuket, Thailand, to private residences in Italy and France – Navone’s work never ceases to amaze.
