itay ohaly: fractures

fractures have different forms that derive from the material structure and the type and strength of energy that is activated upon it.

israeli designer itay ohaly says: during the years, with the development of industrial processes, we ‘tamed’ the material and took it away from its natural form. our eyes are accustomed to see flattened, polished and bright materials, as well as our sense of touch that examines the feel and quality of the surface.

this project is an exploration of the material characteristics, in fracture. it presents the wild and unique aesthetics of each material and its interaction with intense energy. the ‘full’ object is the starting point of each creation while the fracture brings it to its final shape.

  • Not sure why rip-offs of authentic designs are being posted on this site. Actually I’m not sure why I’m posting this comment as the moderator will likely remove it anyways!

  • It is on dezeen today,
    why are you publishing the same designers?
    We are many but the design sites feature only the same few.

  • one thing you have to admire about this designer is that he is convexly great at simple contextualization as it relates to material and form derived from pre existing ideation – nice splitter bench!
