ABET has launched Serigrafia 2008 laminates created by the well-known Italian designer, Paola Navone.
Paola Navone graduated in 1973 in architecture from the Turin Politecnico. Between 1970 and 1980 worked alongside Alessandro Mendini, Ettore Sottsass and Andrea Branzi in the Alchimia and Memphis groups, the most progressive set on the Italian design scene, developing a highly productive and stimulating avant-garde stance which gained her, in 1983, the Osaka International Design Award, presented for the first time that year.
Paola Navone was born in Turin and worked in Milan. Paola Navone is driven by her interest in widely differing cultures, particularly the oriental ones. She maintains a studio in Hong Kong.
In her long and multi faceted career, Paola Navone has switched easily between the roles of architect, designer, art director, interior designer, critic, teacher and organiser of exhibitions and events, both independently and for select clients: ABET LAMINATI, Armani Casa, Knoll International, Alessi, Mondo, Driade, Orizzonti, Arcade, Oltrefrontiera, Casamilano, Antonangeli, Dada, Molteni, Natuzzi, Gervasoni and Swarovski.
