“Saddle” brings together two of my most beloved things: chairs and bicycle riding.
Seizing opportunities is an important thing in life. That’s exactly what I did when I heard Design Museum Holon was planning an exhibition about bicycle. I started thinking of a way to be involved in the exhibition, and submitted a proposal for designing a series of objects made for sitting — inspired by the bike saddle. The proposal was approved, and this marked the beginning of an era in my life which goes on to this day.
I plan objects that are meant to be sat on like bike saddles. This perspective is quite liberating — it enables me to literally think out of the box. Some of the objects look like chairs and seats, others take new, unexpected shapes. The lack of obligation allows for surprising results.
