Design Museum Holon

Posted in Architecture, Art, Design, Travel on July 25, 2011 by Jesse Zryb

In 2010, the Design Museum Holon officially opened to rave reviews and brought a lot of attention from the design world to this Israeli city located just outside of Tel Aviv. The first thing that captures your eye when you see this building are these brightly colored ribbons weaving around, and upon further investigation you find that they create a highly functional museum, tied together by these striking sculptural forms.

The museum, which was designed by Ron Arad Architects, is part of a 16-year regeneration plan instituted by the Mayor of Holon, Motti Sasson, to establish the town as a center for design, culture, and education. It joins the already built Mediatheque Theater, Mediatheque Public Library, Holon Cinematheque, and the Israeli Cartoon Museum as part of the Holon Mediatheque campus.

The Design Museum Holon showcases site-specific exhibitions focusing on design concepts, objects and architecture. The museum also houses an extensive material librarywhere designers from all different fields can find an extensive collection along with other valuable information for their taking. Currently on display at the museum is an exhibit called New Olds, which examines new ways of looking at common materials and how to assemble (or re-assemble) them.  If you find yourself in Israel, the Mediatheque campus makes for a great visit and this iconic new museum helps establish the city of Holon as a cultural and design hub within the Middle East.
