Materials and technologies can form the basis for a meaningful action in the design world. Research of the relationship between material, form and narrative often creates a unique design language that reveals the personal identity of the designer, brand or culture from which they come from. Creating new objects alone is not enough, in order to continue on the professional path, the designer often connects to the worlds of branding, business plans and partnerships leading to long lasting and rich activity in the world of design. Each designer, brand or company create their professional path in a different way, corresponding to the needs and the unique nature of the creators and audience to which they deliberate.

Aharon Feiner Eden Materials Library, Design Museum Holon in collaboration and support of the Italian Cultural Institute of Tel Aviv and The Italian Embassy in Israel, invite you to a festive gathering about design through materials, technology and narrative and the correlations with branding and business initiatives.
