Eilon Armon is an industrial designer and a maker of chairs for over 30 years. "I am a student of a chair" a poem by Aharon Shabtai and studying etching with Galit Rauchwerger at the Artists House, created an environment that enabled the unique combination between a chair, a word and an image. Through this connection, Eilon made a limited-edition artist monograph of etchings and texts. The book of etchings in its special case were individually crafted by Eilon and then bound by hand by Ido Agassi.
The space created in the gallery crosses media and examines the language of each, referring to the past and present and inquires into the inspirational relationship between design, art and craft.
