Club Silencio, Paris, designed by Raphael Navot in partnership with David Lynch
"It was probably there [at the Eindhoven Design Academy] that I adopted the approach that research and study are the key to everything, and in my perception design is based on them and on the aspiration to understand the balance between form and function at its different levels, which can certainly include emotional aspects as well. Understanding this balance is, in my view, essential for the process, which at its culmination is supposed to ‘stitch’ the two components into a single entity, whether it’s a space or an object", he says to Maya Orr in an interview for Bayit VeNoy magazine, and adds, "The designer is charged with responsibility. The design has to be responsible and reasoned, and integrity is the most important thing of all. With every piece I check myself over and over and include the client in order to create a dialogue that will ensure that these values are maintained"
