Design Museum in Holon, Israel

Tags: , , ,

A few days ago I wrote about the Toyko Fiber Senseware exhibition at the Design Museum in Israel (Holon, Israel, to be specific). What I purposely neglected to mention was the architecture of the Israel museum itself. Absolutely stunning.

Like most museums (in Israel, or elsewhere), the building itself is a design exhibit. Under construction since 2007, the museum by Ron Arad (an Israeli architect) opened to the public in March of 2010. Its most noticeable feature is a series of ribbon-like bands in the central courtyard. Underneath the sweeping steel ribbons there is an outdoor ramp that connects the second floor gallery back down to the main entrance. The ramp serves as a unique link between the galleries—and also between inside & outside.

This museum in Israel is one of my favorites. Not just for its striking architectural beauty, but also for its interesting and unique exhibits. But this is also coming from a graphic designer. So I may be a little biased. Regardless, if you’re visiting Israel – I highly recommend this as one of the best museums in Israel.

  1. So Interesting! I’m glad you got a chance to take photos.

    • Yup – it was a cool museum!

  2. I imagine it’s completely different in the daytime. I’ll let you know if I make it back there!

  3. They totally look like ribbons! I’d love to see it during the day, too, just to see how the sun lights different parts of the building. Too cool.
