Ron Arad

Hailed as one of the foremost designers of the 20th Century, Tel Aviv native Ron Arad attended the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem from 1971-73 before moving to London to study under Peter Cook, founder of Archigram, at the Architectural Association. In 1981, he scoured a scrapyard and combined a car seat with a structural tubing frame to create the postmodern Rover Chair, whose popularity significantly launched his career. Ron Aradĺs unique design style would continue to use unorthodox combinations of materials and concepts. In 1994, he created the Bookworm bookshelf, a sturdy but flexible shelf that can coil or take on limitless shape. Employing bimorphic shapes from steel remained a trademark of Aradĺs works.
Kartell's image and its 59 years of history are described through the company's products. The development, the corporate strategies, the attention the company has paid to technology, the project and the design can be appreciated by observing the products Kartell has produced. Kartell's products express the language and the atmosphere of the period in which they were created, but at the same time, they are "contemporary articles," they incorporate many other values and messages and this is why they have become an integral part of our domestic design world.
