Israeli designer Itay Ohaly has designed a series of chairs based on the principle of fractures.
“ Fractures have different forms that derive from the material structure and the type and strength of energy that is activated upon it.
During the years, with the development of industrial processes, we ‘tamed’ that material and took it away from its natural form. Our eyes are accustomed to see flattened, polished and bright materials, as well as our sense of touch that examines the feel and quality of the surface.”
As an exploration of material characteristics, ‘Fracture’ presents the wild and unique aesthetics of each material and its interaction with intense energy.
The ‘full’ object is the starting point of each creation while the fracture brings it to its final shape.
