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

 
The Milan Furniture Fair is in full swing and Inhabitat is on the scene scouring the city for all the latest and greatest green designs. The first stop on our tour is "Design Bonanza", a student show organized by the Industrial Design Department of the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Israel’s oldest institute of higher learning. With an inspiring array of products on display, Design Bonanza explores the true experimental spirit of modern design. From lifesaving objects to a contemporary use of natural textiles, these student designs reinterpret existing materials in an innovative and sustainable way. Professor Haim Parnas, head of the Bachelor of Design program explains, “We believe that eco-sustainability should be in the toolbox of the designers, and in the way they think. Our products speak about the relation of man with the environment, and how they co-exist, using design as the medium.” Jump ahead for our top picks from this spectacular student show!
