Solos: New Design from Israel

January 27, 2006 – April 16, 2006

Museum: Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum

Location: Ground Floor

This first exhibition of contemporary Israeli design in the United States features approximately 25 works, including prototypes, experimental objects, and production pieces by 19 designers who live and work in Israel. Each object selected for the exhibition -- from a table or chair to a lamp or vase -- conveys a powerful physical presence as well as a spirit of speculation and introspection.
