Founded in 2010, Design Space was established to encourage artistic innovation and provide a platform for progressive art in all medias.The Gallery is presenting various fields of art; ranging from product and industrial design, art exhibitions to diverse interdisciplinary projects such as artistic concepts for restaurants, showrooms and public spaces. (see cinema eden and other project Link).
After meeting a year ago, Emmy Shahar, who worked at Christie’s and Sotheby’s in the art market and Salome Fakiel, architect and space planner, have brought together projects as curators that encourage cross-disciplines within cutting edge design and allows for different modes of expression.
Our research is dedicated to artistic exploration, for both established and newly emerging talent, with a strong emphasize on process making. We choose to concentrate on contemporary design and encourage artists to explore the narrative and the use of unorthodox materials which explore the shifting borders between contemporary art and design. Design Space presents one-off commissions and limited-editions while promoting Israeli-based designers and developing the meaning of national identity through the use of materials and the relation with the social identity and rich culture.
