Hope you are still enjoying my posts about Milan Designweek, there is so much to share and besides the many new designers I could easily make another few posts about all the projects where Paola Navone was involved with this year. She is a real busy lady and she worked on so many new collections and installations in collaboration with several brands like Gervasoni, Cappelini and Dutch Linteloo. Besides her work as a designer she is also an amazing art director and I can’t even think on how much fun it must be to come up with a concept and bring it to life. 

Her new collection ‘Take it Easy’ was part of this year’s Linteloo presentation in their showroom in Tortona, where they presented Delicatessen: Furniture, Food & Fun, all set up by Paola Navone and based on food and delicatessen, a real marketplace where the finest Italian and Dutch food and furniture met. Have a look at the video below to get a ‘live’ impression of the showroom. 


The love of food and cooking, along with travelling to other countries, turned out to be just some of the things Paola and Jan Linteloo shared when they first met around 6 years ago. Next to her new collection for Linteloo called ‘Take it easy’ the showroom was decorated with several iconic pieces like huge blue fishes, and funny carpets based on Salami and Mortadella and a wallpaper series, all made especially for this presentation. The new ‘Butcher’ collection by Dutch designer Sjoerd Vroonland perfectly fitted in! As an additional element hundreds of plastic ’tiles’ were cut in order to enhance the butcher concept.


Take it easy

Paola Navone’s new collection ‘Take it Easy’ for Linteloo was introduced during the Milan Design Week. Take It Easy is a simple and refined collection of sofas and side tables that is dedicated to bring people together in an informal and playful atmosphere. The sofas for the new collection are dressed with soft linen in powdery, plain colours as well as bright colours full of energy.

Butcher collection by Sjoerd Vroonland
Dutch designer Sjoerd Vroonland has translated Linteloo’s feel good factor and passion for food into the Butcher collection. Inspired by artisan bakers and butchers and their tools as a baking tray or a chopping block Vroonland designed this collection consisting of the Butcher Table, Butcher Stool and Butcher Bench. The dining table, the central piece, is made from crosscut material from the ends of wooden planks.
