Ron Arad simply is one of the most influential designers of our time. His constant experimentation with the possibilities of materials such as steel, aluminium or polyamide and his radical re-conception of the form and structure of furniture has put him at the forefront of contemporary design.

Born in Tel Aviv in 1951, educated at the Jerusalem Academy of Art and later at the Architectural Association in London, Arad is an industrial designer, graphic designer and architect. Alongside his limited edition studio work, Arad designs for many leading international companies including Kartell, Vitra, Moroso, Fiam, Driade, Alessi, Cappellini, Cassina, WMF and Magis among others. He has also designed a number of Public Art pieces, most recently the Vortext in Seoul, Korea, and the Kesher Sculpture at Tel Aviv University.

His architectural projects include National Design Museum in Holon, Israel (2010); Y’s (Yohji Yamamoto) flagship store in Roppongi Hills, Tokyo, Japan (2003); Hotel Duomo in Rimini, Italy (2006); Maserati Headquarters Showroom in Italy (2003); the Selfridges Technology Hall in London (2001); among many others. Arad and his work have been celebrated in the world’s most influential cultural instututions including the Museum of Modern Art , Pompidou Centre, de Pury & Luxembourg, Galerie der Moderne, Munich and more, as well as published in close to a dozen books.

And this March, Arad joins us in the DX Library. In town for the launch of PQ Eyewear exclusively presented by KARIR, Arad will provide a talk on this new collection inspired by Le Corbusier, animal vertebrae, his work and vision
