– at the OLD STAKLOPAN FACTORY – in Belgrade, Stahinjića Bana Street 7 – 9, Dorćol, 7th – 11th October, free entry from 10h to 20h – POWERED BY GORENJE
The exhibition describes through common objects, the way in which Israeli designers cope with the passion to create in the face of the necessity to exist. Survival, as is commonly stated, is the mother of all inventions. It seems that in the fields of design, the artists are required to do even more. They are required to think out of the box, to develop a unique point of view, a fresh and unexpected way to observe problems, as well as construct solutions. Supported by the Embassy of Israel in Serbia and the Holon Design Museum.
Independent from ephemeral trends and narrowing norms, Tom Strala realizes unique collections. His objects d’art are known and appreciated both as sophisticated, precise and timeless pieces of art as well as objects of function. Supported by Pro Helvetia.
