The project connects between two local design fields: fashion design and product design. The connection between softness of textiles and the tough characteristics of ceramic objects create an interesting meeting point, especially the opposing attributes of steady vs. flowing natures of the materials.
We tried to examine how the relation between man and object is formed and how a ceramic object changes its form from decorative object with a certain purpose to a wearable object with a new function.
In this project we tried to present a certain local esthetic shared by designers from different practices. Both Ben-Shoshan and Kushnir produce their items in a process that in many ways modernizes local traditional craftsmanship. The use of ceramic material and natural, light fabrics both in soft, worm colors and forms is driven from our local Middle Eastern weather, light and landscape that serve as a major inspiration to both designers.
