Ron Arad

Born in Tel Aviv in 1951, educated at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem and later at the Architectural Association in London, Ron Arad co-founded the design and production studio One Off in 1981 and later, in 1989, the Ron Arad Associates architecture and design practice.
From 1994 to 1999 he established the Ron Arad Studio, design and production unit in Como, Italy. He was Professor of Design Product at the Royal College of Art in London up until 2009, was awarded the 2011 London Design Week Medal for design excellence and became a Royal Academician of the Royal Academy of Arts in 2013.
Ron 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 Moroso, Fiam, Driade, Cassina, Kartell and Vitra among many others.
Ron Arad is honorary professor at the "Hochschule" in Vienna, honorary curator of the International Design Yearbook and alongside his architectural projects has designed a number of public art pieces.
His works are included internationally in the most prestigious public collections.
