Addiction Wallpaper by Paola Navone®
Paola Navone graduated in 1973 in architecture from the Turin Politecnico. Between 1970 and 1980 she worked alongside Alessandro Mendini, Ettore Sottsass Jr. and Andrea Branzi in the Alchimia group, the most progressive set on the Italian design scene. She developed a highly productive and stimulating avant-garde stance. This gained her, in 1983, the prestigious Osaka International Design Award, bestowed for the first time that year. In December 2014 she was welcomed as a member of Interior Design Magazine’s Hall of Fame in New York.

Paola Navone uses the colour blue constantly, be it for dinnerware or tiles, sofas or sconces. Her collection “Obsession” is an ode to the hue. As for pattern, her logo, and a symbol she uses frequently, is the fish, which seems only logical since Pisces is her astrological sign. Naturally, it is included in her collection. “I decided to put my fish on a large scale,” she says. “It’s three meters high. I love things to be big! Big is beautiful. Most wallpaper is usually done as a repeat. My fish is one-off in the middle of a wall.”
PNO01 is a mural. To complement the rest of your wall you can choose rolls of PNO02.
