Objects that bridge the gap between furniture and art. That’s how one can understand Ron Gilad’s works. This Israeli-by-origin contemporary conceptual designer, currently based in New York, quickly drew the attention of curators, galleries, designers and press. Gilad’s sculptural items bring graphic outlines to life and play with viewer’s perception. Gilad combines minimalism and pragmatism in his look-a-like simple line drawings pieces, creating designs of astringent thoughtfulness, wit and elegance. Gilad’s fascination with “deconstructing” the function of an object has resulted in a broad body of work, ranging from furniture to jewelry to whole interiors. Each of his designs exhibits his meticulous attention and focus, his poetic formalism, and his offering of beautiful asceticism.
