“Ron Arad: Yes to the Uncommon!” at Vitra Schaudepot

Readymades constructed from old car seats, innovative carbon fibre furniture, hand-welded steel furnishings and sculptural mass-manufactured products: works by the world-famous designer Ron Arad defy conventional boundaries. The Vitra Design Museum’s monographic exhibition »Ron Arad: Yes to the Uncommon!« gives an overview of his diverse oeuvre.

The show also includes more recent objects resulting from the direct transfer of his experimental approach to serially manufactured products.
