Meet the Designer Ron Arad with Olson and Baker

Born in Tel Aviv in 1951, educated at the Jerusalem Academy of Art and later at the Architectural Association in London, Ron Arad co-founded the design and production studio One Off in 1981 with Caroline Thorman and later, in 1989, Ron Arad Associates architecture and design practice. In 2008 Ron Arad Architects was established alongside Ron Arad Associates.

In 1994 he established the Ron Arad Studio, a design and production unit in Como, Italy, in operation until 1999. He was Professor of Product Design at the Royal College of Art in London until 2009. Ron Arad was awarded the 2011 London Design Week Medal for design excellence, and became a Royal Academician of the Royal Academy of Arts in 2013.

Ron Arad’s constant experimentation with the possibilities of materials such as steel, aluminium or polyamide and his radical re-conception of the form and structure of furniture has put him at the forefront of contemporary design and architecture.
Alongside his limited edition studio work, Arad designs for many leading international companies including Kartell, Vitra, Moroso, Fiam, Driade, Alessi, Cappellini, Cassina, WMF and Magis as well as many others.

Ron Arad has designed a number of Public Art pieces, most recently the Vortext in Seoul, Korea, and the Kesher Sculpture at Tel Aviv University.
