With her sense for classy eclecticism and the pleasure of intermingling, Paola Navone once more enriched Gervasoni’s collection this year. Included in the ‘Sweet’ collection are articles inspired by different “worlds”, by artisan knowledge going back to ancient tradition.

The new small interwoven armchair is as naturally beautiful and familiar as an object from one’s earliest memory. It retains the essence of the traditional comfortable and sturdy Philippine “papasan” seat which inspired it. The materials, however, are different: iron for the three-foot support structure and black rubber tubing for the wicker work constituting the seat.
The same black rubber tubing – in smaller dimensions – is the material used for the new suspension lamp which comes in two generous sizes; the image is that of an interwoven basket turned upside down and suspended from the ceiling with a cable wrapped in red fabric.

‘Ivy’ by Paola Navone for EMU

'Ivy' by Paola Navone

'Ivy' by Paola Navone

The ‘Ivy’ collection designed by Paola Navone for Emu is inspired by the ancient “topiary” art, the trimming of trees ad shrubs in order to give them ornamental shapes. This art derived from the attempt to “model” nature, as in the words of Shirley Hibberd, the person responsible for the revival of topiary in England in the late 1800s: “It may be true, as I believe it is, that the natural form of a tree is the most beautiful possible for that tree, but it may happen that we do not want the most beautiful form, but one of our own designing, and expressive of our ingenuity.”

Finding inspiration in this art, Paola Navone has designed sculpture-furniture created for living in and beautifying outdoor areas, structures created using the natural material par excellence — metal — bent to the will of the human mind.

The meeting between the designer and Emu made it possible to mold an apparently “hard” material such as metal, obtaining three-dimensional shapes so light that they give the impression that they could float in the air.

The structures of sofas, armchairs and table, empty inside, incorporate nature and become an integral part of it thanks to their noninvasive character, which harmonizes with the surrounding landscape.

They are objects created to be left outdoors nonchalantly, furniture that will allow itself to be “eaten up” by ivy like statues, and those who sit on it will fully experience the feeling of being immersed in nature.
