Spaces, Etc./ An Exercise in Utility
Ron Gilad’s hybrid objects combine material wit with aesthetic play; they sit on the fat, delicious line between the abstract and the functional. After training as an industrial designer in Jerusalem, he established his studio Designfenzider in New York in 2001. Though primarily working on furniture, products and tabletop objects, these forms are conceptual opportunities for Gilad to ask questions in 3-D form. Published to coincide with Ron Gilad’s first US exhibition, this volume documents the designer’s recent work, Spaces Etc./ An Exercise in Utility plus an essay from Art Institute of Chicago design curator Zoë Ryan.
