Ron Gilad

Born in Tel Aviv in 1972, Gilad trained as an industrial designer at the prestigious Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. In 2001, he relocated to New York City where he established his studio Designfenzider. Gilad takes a cerebral approach to design. Primarily working on furniture, products, and tabletop objects, he creates objects that combine material with with aesthetic play; they sit on “the fat, delicious line between the abstract and the functional.”
