Born in 1951 in Tel Aviv, Israel, Ron Arad studied at the Jerusalem Academy of Art (1971-73 and at the Architectural Association in London (1974-79). In 1989, he founded 'Ron Arad Associates'. In 1994 he established the 'ron arad studio', design and production unit in Como, Italy.
His london studio has increasingly produced individual pieces made of sheet steel, and he always mischievously exploits their formal and functional possibilities to the fullest. the sculptural forms often have an unexpected impact which first emerges during use, and are just as much a result of graphic design as the experimental work that goes on in the workshop.
