Among the most influential designers of our time, Ron Arad (Israeli, b. 1951) stands out for his daredevil curiosity about technology and materials and for the versatile nature of his work. Over the past twenty-five years, he has produced an outstanding array of innovative objects, spanning from the limited to the almost unlimited series, from carbon fiber armchairs to polyurethane bottle racks. This exhibition will be the first major retrospective of Arad's design work in the United States. A designer and an architect, trained at the Jerusalem Academy of Art and at London's Architectural Association, he has also designed memorable spaces, some plastic and tactile, others ethereal and digital.
