As Design Museum Holon enters its 5th year, the Museum presents two innovative and thought-provoking exhibitions highlighting and analysing the multi-dimensional process of design. Alongside the exhibitions, Italy-Israel Design Forum will take place 25th March and includes a panel of international key speakers including Editor-in-Chief of Designboom, Birgit Lohmann, and world-renowned architect, Ron Arad.

The exhibition IN-Possible, a collaboration with the Alessi Museum in Omegna, invites viewers for a unique behind-the-scenes glimpse into one of the world's most important and influential design companies. Curated by Francesca Appiani, the exhibition shows over 50 designs that did not go into production. These designs were proposed to Alessi by well-known personalities from the design and architecture world, past and present, among them Philippe Starck, Zaha Hadid, Patricia Urquiola, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, and Ettore Sottsass.

Yaacov Kaufman's exhibition, Stools, is curated by Galit Gaon and presents over 400 stools created in Kaufman's studio over the past eight years. The Stools are shown in a manner that resembles their own development process. "The observation of this tribe of stools is akin to the observation of groups of human beings - each of us unique and special in our own way." Galit Gaon, Chief Curator at Design Museum Holon
