Ron Arad was born in Tel Aviv in 1951 and was educated at the Jerusalem Academy of Art. He established his architecture and design businesses in London in the early 1980s.
Arad’s 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 and architecture. 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 many others.
Arad has designed a number of Public Art pieces, most recently the Vortext in Seoul, Korea, and the Kesher Sculpture at Tel Aviv University. Arad began working with Dovecot in 2015 to create samples with a view to creating a rug based on his crushed car series Pressed Flowers.
