What do you really love?

Especially for small humans PIXERS has prepared a wall decals collection called Kawaii Boom, with the main motif of Japanese kawaii, a unique quality of cuteness existing in the culture of Japan. It seems that it has become a prominent aspect of Japanese popular culture, entertainment, clothing, food, toys, personal appearance, behaviour, and mannerisms. The collection of sweet and lovely bunnies and bears will be attractive not only for kids, but also for older aficionados of anime and manga.
Curious, light blue eyes, short silver hair, a little messy, like a little rascal. Paola Navone is just as you see her, spontaneous and immediate, in life as in her way of designing.
Eclectic by nature, she is an architect, designer, art director, interior decorator and curator of expositions and events. Between 1974 and 1978 she worked for Centrokappa, the creative division of Kartell. She has been editor at Domus and took part in the avant-garde Memphis and Alchimia movements. Companies spanning fields such as furniture, materials, textile collections, illumination and interior design avail themselves of her consultancy. And in 1987 she was nominated art director of Mondo (division Cappellini).
