A metaphor of light (past exhibition)

Opens: November 7, 2016
Design Lab

Lighting is an art

This indisputable statement is clearly given expression in the lighting typical of Caravaggio and Vermeer's paintings. Even today, artists often act as catalysts for innovative lighting processes, in close collaboration with similarly daring architects who give rise to unconventional ideas and new design-related knowledge.

For many designers, Italy is the only place where they can find those capable of turning their dream projects into objects. These creations, in turn, are highly appreciated by the international market for their ability to transform the atmosphere of homes, workplaces, museums, and even archaeological sites - enhancing the experience of living in spaces where lighting transcends its role as a necessary function to become an essential condition of well-being and pleasure.

This exhibition showcases 50 lamps designed between 1933 and 2015 by internationally renowned architects, designers, and artists for Italy's leading design companies.

This exhibition was initiated by the Italian Cultural Institute in Tel Aviv and Fondazione Sartirana Arte and organized in collaboration with Design Museum Holon, under the sponsorship of the Embassy of Italy in Israel
