About the Designer
Ron Arad Ron Arad Israel (1951 - )

Ron Arad was born in 1951 in Tel Aviv into an artistic family - his mother is a painter, his father a photographer. He attended the Academy of Art in Jerusalem until the early 1970s, when he decided to leave Israel and study architecture in the UK. Settling in London in 1974, he enrolled at the city's least conventional school, the Architectural Association, where he studied under Peter Cool and Bernard Tschumi with classmates like Nigel Coates, Peter Wilson and Zaka Hadid. He quickly developed artistic and cultural interests outside architecture, and his work became increasingly oriented towards design and non-rhetorical artistic uses of materials. In 1981, with Dennis Groves and Caroline Thorman, he set up One Off, the design agency that made its successful debut with a set of tubular steel furniture. Arad has made no secret of his predilection for technology and the modern aesthetic as ways of revisiting and revising typologies from the past. As a sculptor and craftsman who has taught himself to cut sheet steel, bend wooden legs and put bent plywood to new sculptural uses, he has produced furniture that is emotional and sensual as well as aggressively light and practical. A similar philosophy is evident in his designs for the futuristic foyer of the Opera House in Tel Aviv, the Belgo restaurant in London, the installations for "L'Esprit du Nomade", Fondation Cartier in Paris, the impressive project of Adidas Stadium in Paris, the Domus Totem for the Triennale in Milan, the exclusive Yohji Yamamoto's Store in Tokyo, the Design Museum in Holon, Israel.

A bookshelf that draws inspiration from the sinuous form of a ribbon, Lovely Rita features an innovative and beautiful reinterpretation of the traditional bookshelf. Its unique design allows it to be fitted side-by-side with other modules to meet the user's desired length. Lovely Rita adds a soft and elegant accent to the living room, bedroom or study.

Good quality, but dont like the way that it sits

 from Washington

We didn't like it with the way that it sits on the wall. The quality good and it looks like it does online. Just not too happy with the look on the wall.
