Description

This piece belongs to the Topographic Memories series by designer Raphael Navot and the master-craftsmen of Les Ateliers Saint Jacques as part of the Editions Courbet program.

For this capsule collection, Navot draws inspiration both from the material's personality and the time-honored techniques carried on by the Ateliers Saint Jacques master craftsmen.

Resulting from a three-year-long collaboration between Courbet, Raphael Navot, and Les Ateliers Saint-Jacques, the collection is informed by Navot’s design vocabulary and his longstanding fascination for traditional crafts, raw materials, their essence, and their stories. Whether carved in stone or cast in bronze, each piece is a sculptural interpretation of topographic landscapes with emphasized details and textures that highlight the artisans’ dexterity.

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.
