Ron Arad Biography

Ron Arad, one of the most influential designers and architects of our time, defies categorisation between sculpture, architecture and industrial design. The artist has established his aesthetic in a limitless creative process mixing raw and polished materials, handcraft and industrial technologies. Tirelessly experimenting with materials and exploring new forms, Ron Arad has produced a very varied range of creative objects based on sinusoidal, elliptical and oval forms, as limited pieces in one-off series. The artist created his first iconic piece in 1981 when he associated a leather-covered seat taken off from a car to a curved base made of Kee-Klamps (the tubular construction system) for his Rover Chair.
