Ron Arad @ The Barbican I.

Eliana TomazComment
Last Saturday I went to The Barbican in London with friends to see Ron Arad: Restless exhibition.

Ron Arad had a big impact on my early career as a designer. I was totally inspired and engaged with stainless steel. This exhibition brought me back the wish to talk about my early work and my aspirations as a designer, but I’ll leave the enthusiasm for another post towards the end of the week. Stay tuned.


One of the things that I really like about the way the show was curated is the lack of huge texts explaining the designer/artist work. A few caption naming each piece, but that’s about it. I like the way they "allow" viewers to “assess” each piece on their own.

"Happy Days" (It really reminds my primary school desk, and those were indeed happy days)

Work in progress.



This and the next chair are beautifully made. Layers and layers of quite thin tubes/wires. So much texture.

I’ve so many photographs that I thought it would be better if I post a few today and a few more tomorrow, otherwise my article is going to be too long.

To read more about the exhibition, Dezeen has a nice article on it.
