THE DESIGNER
“Since I was a child, I was fascinated by Pop-up books…The excitement before turning a page, a simple pull that uncovers a whole new world. I loved how the story came to life, how the books created a fantasy world that flew off the page. The magic, the excitement, the naiveté…”
Chen Bikovski is a Tel Aviv-based designer exploring the relation of light and space. Named “Promising Young Designer of 2012,” Chen‘s work is presented in prominent galleries and featured in leading design publications.

ISTANBUL’DAN

ISTANBUL’DAN

 

The noise, the old and the new, the improvised and the temporary – all the stories that are told and all the experiences shared, the constant change and all the unpredictable aspects of life. What fascinates and captivates us is the versatility and complexity at hand. On our travels around Istanbul we consciously move outside the boundaries of our comfort zone – we want to discover, learn and act. In this day and age actions of inhospitableness are everywhere to be found: thousands of people flee from their homes only to be welcomed with hostility and xenophobia.
