A new design concept rises in Israel
Israel Design Week recently showcased localised works from architects, designers and design makers in the capital, Tel Aviv. Although designers from the country often work on international projects, ranging from offices to restaurants, this exhibition was about curating the local design flavour of Israel. This contributing choice to the global design climate has been unique because Israel is very technology-savvy and the winds here always slant towards a martial environment but it is still a newcomer to the design stage. Born free from a heritage in design, unlike Europe, Israel chose to celebrate this moment by expressing their independence and their capacity to grow, to evolve and to twist, with intelligence; refinements are happening to the design tapestry in Israel, all the while connecting with the audience over that conversation.
