Gallery: Bezalel Academy of Arts Presents a “Design Bonanza” at Ventura...

Arm created by Roi Vapsi Yanai is a lamp created by paper, enabling different shapes and curves.

Here is “Glass Knives for the Post-Modern Neanderthal” by Itmar Foguel. The piece reminisces on the art of breaking rock and glass into tools, as was done by the prehistoric man. It shows how man can manually create survival tools from broken bottles without any raw materials or employing an industrial process.

Rachel Boxnboim’s “Alice” is an interesting mix of materials that combine cloth and ceramics to produce interesting shapes, textures and colors.

“Red Beard” by Shai Lanir is a range of fashionable helmets made of hardened wool in epoxy material, with a removable interior sewn from Cordura and cotton, and lined with polyethylene foam combined with polypropylene.

“Craft Oriented Design” by Rami Tareef studies the hybridization between crafts and modern design, creating chairs using minimal material.

“Preserved” is an innovative project by Baruch Mogilevsky which keeps meat dried and preserved, making it edible for years. This is done by making a rigid capsule of high pressured salt, the hardness of which keeps the meat sealed.

“Lint” by Shelly Simcha aims to give a new life to the lint collected in the dryer to create a blanket by composing the fibers.
