Description

The Forêt collection was created with the intention to revive an ancient tradition that gave way to the widely spread flat grain parquet. La Forêt de bois de bout is an innovative approach to End Grain flooring and wall covering. End Grain flooring is a traditional method used in the 19th century throughout Europe and America primarily in factories, museums, and bridges. The main reason for which End Grain floors covered such diverse grounds is thanks to one main feature - its strength. 

The collection focuses on protecting the natural quality and durability of this tradition while introducing an engineered contemporary version that allows an easy application. Navot collaborated with the Paris-based woodcrafters of Oscan Ono to design different patterns in variable sizes, from a simple grid, arrow alignment to complex patchwork as well as a numerous shadings and custom-made features.

Raphael Navot

Born in Jerusalem, Raphael Navot moved to Paris, where he currently works and resides, after graduating from Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands. The multidisciplinary designer focuses on bespoke design commissions and interiors made to measure using time-honored techniques and detailed contemporary ‘savoir-faire’.

Navot garnered international recognition with elegant public projects including the Parisian flagship boutique of Japanese brand Pas de Calais, the Hôtel National des Arts et Métiers - a 66 room hotel and restaurant in central Paris - and his most published collaboration with movie director and artist David Lynch for the design of his Silencio cinema and membership club in Paris.

Raphael's work reflects an emphasis on detailed craftsmanship and the design ethos close to the curatorial direction of Les Ateliers Courbet.
