In May, Surface hosted the tenth edition of our Design Dialogues series on the penthouse terrace of the Soho Grand Hotel. Legendary Italian designer (and cover star of our May Design Issue) Paola Navone and Crate and Barrel president Marta Calle joined executive editor Spencer Bailey to talk about how Navone's three-part collection with Crate came about (Calle sent Navone a letter in the mail); how to scale thoughtful, well-made design for a mass market; and why Navone and Crate proved a successful collaboration. Special thanks to St-Germain for providing drinks. (Video: Wenck Brothers)
