About Nora Voon : Nora Voon is the Founder and Principal of Noda Designs. A graduate of Inchbald School of Design in London, UK, she was the recipient of the prestigious Fox Linton award for her innovative commercial design for Preen Fashion House. Working with artisans and designers, her projects span across the globe in Europe, Asia, Middle East and N. America.

Deeply inspired by her travels with a keen focus on sustainability, her love of traditional craftsmanship, bold colours and graphic organic motifs, you can feel her passion and sneaky sense of humor in the beautiful materials she chooses, the objects she crafts, the spaces she manifests.

An artist, a connector and a dreamer, she understands that it takes a village to make things happen and counts on the best people to do it right. That’s what Noda is, a collective of incredible talent, a concept store, a design firm. Part of why she loves her job is that she gets to see the world through an interior designer’s eyes. People often ask her what makes a good interior designer and her answer has always been travel. 'Travel as far as you can, as often as you can, because the world is our oyster! It changes you as a designer and opens your horizon to trying new things.' Understanding different cultures and history make the designs even more intricate and detailed. In most of her interior projects, there are always some element of influences from a place she had travelled before or seen and it is most prominent in the products that she makes, hence her tagline, Made from the world.

After working many years internationally she decided to launch her own home collection inspired whilst working with artisans she has met over the years. Her constant research worldwide has honed her eyes and skills in forecasting young and upcoming designers.

'As designers, it is imperative that we constantly update ourselves with what is new in our industry in order to stay relevant and informed.'

In addition to launching her own collection this year, she is also launching her interactive concept studio where it will be showcasing new talents, have pop up events that will inform and educate the community with trends, art news, new innovations and engaging a dialogue between our industry and the public promoting individuality while creating a multi-layered stimulating and sensory experience.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Design and Art should always integrate especially in the field of interior design and architecture. Art shapes the way we feel and good art should evoke a feeling whether it is good, sad or otherwise, it should provoke some kind of emotions. Design is similar in the way that it should not only be functional, but it should also be aesthetically pleasing and promote an emotive response. Good design should reflect these qualities but at the same time the overall first impression should be striking and catch one's attention.
