Description


A dynamic, highly visual, and in-depth study of Omer Arbel, the internationally celebrated and collected multi-disciplinary designer and master of sculptural lighting

The work of Omer Arbel Office moves fluidly between the fields of design, architecture, sculpture, and invention. This monograph brings together twenty-two compelling projects –  from lighting works for Bocci to furniture and standalone homes – to reveal practice founder Arbel's radical design ethos, which is rooted in material experimentation and collaboration. Organized by four thematic chapters and richly illustrated with beautiful product photography interwoven with preparatory drawings and ephemera, this book provides unique insight into Arbel's highly diverse practice. With essays by guest contributors including American curator Glenn Adamson and senior design curator at the V&A, Brendan Cormier, and excerpted historical texts from seminal writers, artists, and thinkers – from Sigmund Freud to Robert Smithson – which provide compelling cultural context for this stimulating contemporary studio.
