Naomi Paul’s textile and product design studio specialises in handcrafted, innovative objects and materials for interior spaces.
The studio’s approach to design is to create beautiful functional objects and textiles that are developed through highly skilled craftsmanship, designing for longevity through simplicity and sensibility.
Naomi Paul studio is best known for it’s lighting designs which have been commissioned by high profile clients such as; Pullman Hotels, Conran Contracts, Vodafone, Firmdale Hotels, Benjamin West, Ludwig Beck Munich, Nando’s Uk & Australia
The lighting is distinguished by an exponential mathematical curve spun in 360 degrees and hand crocheted from mercerised cotton resulting in a beautiful dichotomy between exacting technique and exquisitely soft material.
Sustainability is a key part of Naomi’s design process and is integral to the development of each product from material sourcing and innovative construction techniques, through to packaging, delivery and end of life considerations.
