JF: To recap our whirlwind four days in Holon and Tel Aviv might best be done through pictures. Our meetings with designers were so engrossing that sometimes I forgot to document what was going on! And as my route was sort of circuitous, via Zurich, due to bad weather, I missed your first day which I know was full.

Visit to Pini Leibovich's studio. What fun to see the much published balloon chair in actuality. The films his students made reveal what a gifted teacher he must be. And his process for writing a book is an art piece in itself.

I forgot to take pictures at our coffee meeting with the design team Reddish.
Our hotel offered a pleasant lounge where we could have a few casual meetings.

Galit, in her little red Fiat, zipped us around from meeting to meeting and studio to studio. And, to a most delicious hummus lunch. I'm ready to go back there!

We had a Meeting with Nirith Nelson, Art Director of The Jerusalem Center for the Visual Arts residency, where Marloes ten Bhömer, in our show, will be spending April. What a great confluence.
The Meeting took place at Design Museum Holon and introduced us to the museum staff. To meet these e-mail correspondents, putting face to name, makes the work so much more real!

Meeting at the studio of exhibition designers Ami Drach and Dov Ganchrow.

Meeting at the charming home filled with fascinating objects of Chanan de Lange, exhibition designers, whose 11-year old son, Yehezkel Lazarovy , documented.

A zoom through The Israeli Cartoon Museum en route into a last flurry of meetings in Tel Aviv.
At Shenkar College of Engineering and Design we had a quick tour and saw student work. We peered into a class on the blog as sketch book-a really great idea and use of technology.

Meeting with fashion designers Yael Taragan and Claudette Zorea at a café before zooming off to the airport where we needed every single minute to make it through the lines and security.
