Ron Arad is an Israelian designer. He is renowned because he freed himself from the classic codes of design.
His international acknowledgment began during the 70s with the Rover armchairs, inspired by the car with the same name. Then, he appealed the amateurs and professionals of design by creating pieces of furniture such as the Tom Vac chair (1977) and the Bookworm shelf (1993). His work is unique thanks to nonstandard lines. Biography Ron Arad was born in 1951 in Israel. He studied at the Jerusalem Academy of Art then went to London, to the Architectural Association School. He founded his first creation studio in 1981. Arad always appreciated originality; his work is the reflection of his audacity. The forms are elliptical: he favors aestheticism rather than function. Free and without limits, he impressed the design world by his surprising work. His creations are produced in limited series but they can also come from an industrial production thanks to his collaboration with Kartell, Vitra but also Alessi. In 2009, the Parisian museum called “Centre Pompidou” devoted him a retrospective for his major creations, including the bottle of perfume for Kenzo.
