70 Years of Craft and Design

Israel 70 years of craft & design - catalogue cover page

In celebration of Israel’s 70th anniversary, Mingei International Museum, in collaboration with the House of Israel and its curator Smadar Samson mounted a magnificent exhibition of Israeli craft and design. Beautifully laid out and filled with an expansive range of creations the show presented art objects from the late 19th century through the present, including work by Israel’s most visible and interesting designers working today such as Dori Csengeri.

From the show’s catalogue:
Epic style captures Dori Csengeri Imagination, and her Camelot haute couture necklace is a reminiscent of medieval gowns, fierce battle gear and dragons’ scales.  With its immaculate embellishments and its hand-stitched linen embossed with gold leaf, the necklace strives to find as Csengeri puts it, the “balance between timelessness and timeliness”.
