Let's hook Up

Let's hook up 

At Noda, play is one of our favourite four-letter words. Play makes the mundane better. Play makes the ordinary, interesting. really, shouldn't all of life's most treasured goodies be more about ironic fun? At Noda, play is our pleasure. Design is our passion. The world is our inspiration. We create and curate interiors, objects and art that are uninhibited, mischievous and beautiful.

Wanna play?

Meet Nora

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, her love of traditional craftsmanship, bold colours and graphic organic motifs, you can feel her passion and sneaky sense of humour 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.

For a decade Daria and Nora have collaborated on luxury interiors and commercial spaces around the globe. As a team, they bring a daring sense of style and mischief to everything they design. 

Daria started her career at the Inchbald School of Design in London. From graduation on, Daria gained the best type of experience working at the infamous Chelsea based architectural interior designer, Juliette Byrne. But London isn’t Daria’s home, New jersey is, and so after many years abroad, she launched her own company: Daria B. Designs.

Born in Alicante, Spain in 1988. Carlos studied architecture in Alicante, Ljubljana and Shanghai. Although trained as an architect, his real passion is art. His style is immediate and represents time. The psychological figures he create with his single one line drawing technique are his way of interpreting how he sees the world through his eyes.   

Graduated in 2014, Carlos drew by hand a futuristic city for his final thesis where the Chinese would merge within their 0.5 sqm houses into a kind of run down old fashion machines. This work got international recognition from renowned jury members the likes of Sou Fujimoto, Greg Lynn and a 10/10 score from Ai Wei Wei with an honourable mention in the City vision International Competition 2014.

His work for Noda include murals, portraits and also artwork for our Charlie Trays from our Take a Pill collection launching in 2020. Carlos currently resides in London, UK.
