At the core of the designs is the study of morphological forms in nature.
My designs deal with the transition from two dimensions and their geometry and their "reopening "into three-dimensional structures.This is like a genetic code containing all the information and required knowledge of the final body.
As in nature, so too in my designs, the way in which the two dimensional geometry evolves gives each item its uniqueness.
On a creative level the designs combine two worlds - the traditional and the innovative, the handmade and advanced technology.
The designs can be seen as a continuation of the traditions of the handicraft in "moving books" (pop-ups) which first appeared in the 14th century in Europe in anatomy and science books, and in kirigmi, which is a branch of the art of paper folding (origami), which along with folding combines cutting of the material.
The finished objects are made of hard stainless steel which is cut using photochemical etching technology (a highly accurate technique that allows obtaining a resolution of a fraction of mm.) This technology is used in the electronics and Medical industries, which may be seen in the production of structural pro arteries (stent).
My finished models are coated in copper, silver or gold
Our designs emerge from the constant search for creative ideas and new challenges. Each building project we design gains its unique characteristics from the site properties and the client's needs.
The project design planning is performed with the clients, and following an assessment of their wishes and requirements. Each project is modeled in 3D to allow visualization of the design and to facilitate the planning process with the other consultants and project constructors.
We strive to identify the exact solution for each project that presents a rich experience of the combination of space, light and matter. The solution includes creation of compositions of spaces, while maintaining a simple or minimal structural design. This includes precise calculations of the proportions between external and internal spaces, with reference to openings (windows and doors), aiming to create an atmosphere of thermal comfort in the building.
We believe in the role of the "chief builder" (From Latin: arkhi=chief, tekton=builder) in building design: The architect as a chief builder leading the construction process, involved in every detail, and capable of devoting time and attention to each constituent of the building plan.
