It was amazing to see him speak at the Interior Design Show in Toronto. I can’t wait to see his future work. It is gonna be good!
With the flick of the wrist, the Pick Chair transforms from wall art to functional furniture. It is an inspiring take on the use of space, the transformation of an object, and the combination of art and design. In this way, the design epitomizes Dror’s vision: the beauty of art paired with the simple poetics of form following function.

The two materials offer such complimentary colours, yet such contrasting form and texture.
Finally! I have been looking for this!
Despite their small size, smartphones are expensive, resource-hungry goods, and they deserve a better life cycle than two years of use followed by an eternity in a forgotten desk drawer. It is possible to buy smartphones with an eye to longevity — a strategy that will save money and global resources and give you the snooty self-satisfaction of knowing you’re shunning gadget consumerism.
The main points are: Use your phone for more than two years, ideally three; when you run into trouble, try to repair, not replace it; and when you’re done with it, trade it in. When you’re looking for a new phone, don’t just consider the latest high-end devices; many people will find last year’s best phone just as useful as the newest one. You might even consider buying a used phone instead of a new one.
Sound complicated? It’s not.
Guilloché, a decorative engraving technique dating to the 17th century, uses machines to produce extremely intricate and precise interwoven surface patterns. Also called engine turning, guilloché has been used in metalwork, printed currency and official documents as a means of thwarting counterfeiters; that is, as marks of authenticity and value. Presented here are three selections from a series of cuffs created using a custom parametric computer script— a virtual guilloché engine— that produces these patterns in three dimensions. The cuffs are digitally manufactured using a laser sintering process in nylon: a light, strong and flexible material that produces no waste. Because the cuff geometry is generated parametrically and its production is digitized, there is no limit to the number of possible iterations.
