As part of World Design Capital Taipei 2016 (WDC Taipei 2016), an exhibition titled Creative Roughness: Contemporary Israeli Design has launched in Taiwan’s capital

For WDC Taipei 2016, the Department of Cultural Affairs, Taipei City Government, has invited renowned Israeli designer Alon Razgour to curate the exhibition Creative Roughness: Contemporary Israeli Design. The event showcases 300 creations by 45 designers from Israel and tells the story of how the small country of just 8 million people transformed their desert lands into nourishing grounds for a design start-up nation.

The show is separated into four sections: Inspiration from Traditional and Mediterranean Legacy, Design Education, Design – Materials and Everything In Between and Design for Saving and Better Life. Works on display cross many disciplines, including graphics, fashion and products, and the selection gives the viewer an in-depth look into the landscape of Israel design.

Through the works of Yaacov Kaufman, the highly acclaimed Israeli designer, guests can see traditional weaving patterns alive on furniture pieces, showing off delicate details in vibrant colours, while fabric designer Danit Peleg explores the boundaries of fabric making from hand stitching to 3D printing.

In the Design for Saving and Better Life section, visitors can see the reason that Israel is fast-becoming one of the world’s most creative start-up nations. Featuring products for use during earthquakes and some made specifically for the world of medicine, this portion of the exhibition reflects the endless possibilities and applications for industrial design.
