Two Sugar, Please
Design Museum Holon Staff / November 02 2010

Stav Axenfeld, a graduate of the Department of Visual Communications Design at the Holon Institute of Technology, is exhibiting at Designboom Mart (click here for further details), at Designers Week in Tokyo from October 27 to November 4.
The exhibition presents the works of young designers from around the world (click here for further details).

Stav Axenfeld says: "I was invited to show a product I designed, entitled Two Sugars - a sugar cube in the shape of Roman numerals."

"I designed the product in a course entitled Two Dozen, given by Prof. Gad Charny, in which we were asked to invent a product, produce two dozen units of it, and at the end of the course, to sell it."
