Urban Shading In Israel

Editor: Martin Weyl

This publication and the accompanying exhibition displayed at Design Museum Holon are more than a documentation of current trends. They are a Call for Action. They are a plea for a new "recognition of shade" and for the creation of "shade-scapes" in our urban environments.

Yaacov Kaufman - Stools
25/3/2015 - 6/6/2015

Curator: Galit Gaon

"Stools" exhibition presented about 450 objects created in Studio Yaacov Kaufman in the past eight years. The stools are presented as a complete and continuous course of action, resembling their own development process. At first glance they seem to be replicated mutations of a small piece of furniture - like the animation produced when flipping a flip book. A second, more focused look reveals a diverse, continuously developing, non-hierarchical system of examinations that has no beginning or end, edges or margins. And if they did not have to leave the studio, the stools would continue to fill the small space in Jaffa until it burst at the seams.

GATHERING - From Domestic Craft to Contemporary Process
3/7/2014 - 1/11/2014

Curators: Lidewij Edelkoort and Philip Fimmano

GATHERING features a survey of the ground-breaking 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE collection by the legendary Japanese designer.

Disdain for a boring global market coupled with a fear of the virtualisation of society has inspired designers to create work that is linked to the humanisation of the making process and the contextualisation of a more responsible lifestyle. Craft has therefore become one of the major movements of our time and can be understood as the repetition of skills that belong to our common past, exuding a sense of belonging and continuity.
