israeli designer tal gur‘s ‘daily chair’ on display at the promisedesign exhibition at milan design week 2011 is made from discarded newspapers that have been formed with paper-mâché over a metal frame. the design demonstrates how contemporary designers from the nation have a history of mixing handcraft and production techniques.

the 2011 edition of promisedesign represents a broader reaching perspective of israeli designers since its inception in 2005, with the intention to address a deeper more complete understanding of israeli design in the international scene.

  • this chair is really ugly!

  • I praise the intent on the design and even more the reference to Marc Newson’s formal qualities; however, I wish the designer would have finessed the proportions of the chair a bit more, it can be a very sculptural and beautiful thing on many levels
