32°N Book Club | At home with Noa & Yuval
The big picture:
Both Noa and Yuval wear many hats, and we are proud to say that both of these two inspiring human beings are members of the 32ºN tribe. They were born and raised in Israel, always living with the Mediterranean Sea in sight. It’s also how they raised their two amazing children.
The fine print:
Noa Bar-lev Davidor is a fashion designer, interior designer and an artist who founded ‘Be longing (s)’ - a multidisciplinary lifestyle shop and brand producing thoughtfully made goods for the person and the home: “We use high-quality raw materials in order to obtain a natural, live, humble, and subtle feel. I believe in simplicity as a way to be grounded.”
Yuval is a mechanical engineer with a PHD in artificial intelligence who left the academy for the start-ups world and for the last ten years focuses on sustainability and the environment.
