Tel Aviv’s Art and Design Gallery Design Space is representing for the first time there new collection at “Design Miami” December 2012. The exhibition is dedicated to vessels and containers by work from designers Michael Cederbaum and Noam Dover.
“Hacking the Mould” is a collection of three large vases casted in stoneware by designer Noam Dover and Michael Cederbaum. This collection hopes to take part in a cultural discourse over two related contemporary phenomena – hacker culture and maker culture. First, standard plaster moulds were casted. Then second step was performed by use of chisels and hammers. The mould parts were chiseled out to intervene with the vases formalistic characteristics, as if they were blocks of marbles in the sculptors studio. Finally, stoneware was casted into the moulds to form a series of vases, which contain the contrast between the original form and it’s hack.
Saj Tables designed by Noam Dover and Yoar Reches are hand crafted steel tables in varied compositions, constructed from pressed steel domes called ” Saj” usually used for making thin pita bread.
