INTERWOVEN OBJECTS EXPERIMENTS IN BEING A DESIGNER
YOAV RECHES, NOAM DOVER AND MICHAL CEDERBAUM
The exhibition ‘Interwoven Objects: Experiments in being a designer’ is
a collection of objects which reflect the present moment in our creative development.
After ten years of working together in various forms of collaboration, this event became an opportunity to meet again for a creative dialogue. The works were planned and constructed throughout a joint and extensive collaborative process over the past months, guided by the perception that a mutual discussion provides a rich and fertile framework for multidisciplinary creation.
The exhibition can be looked at as a part of a wide, yet personal, discussion about design, where the basics of the practice are being questioned: what
the meaning of being a designer is, and what our place is - as individual and independent makers - in the field of design. Following this, more questions arise: What is the process through which shapes and forms come about? What cultural baggage do materials hold? What is the value of actually “making” in today’s practice of design?
The current body of work exhibited here hopes to addresses these questions, and no less important - celebrates a diversity of views, forms, colors, materials and techniques.
Yoav Reches is a designer & maker whose work investigates the links between technology, user needs and material culture. With a body of work, which spans across product design, furniture, set design, sculpture, performance and scenography, Yoav's work expresses an ongoing interest with expanding both conceptual and practical applications of product design.
Alongside his studio practice, Yoav has supported various projects from early ideation stage to mass manufacturing as a design consultant. Since 2012 has led Formlabs industrial design team, launching multiple generations of desktop SLA / SLS 3D printing systems.
Yoav's work has been widely exhibited internationally in venues such as Milan Furniture Fair, London Design Week, Volker Diehl Gallery, Berlin, La Manufacture National de Sèvres Gallery, Paris, The Third Biennale for Ceramics, Tel Aviv, Design Museum Holon and Mingei international museum SF.
