Ron Arad has challenged the boundaries of design for almost twenty years. His work was constantly inventive, witty and, above all, accessible. His recycling of ancient car seats to make the Rover chair and his beds made out of scaffolding captured the creative mood of the moment and caught the attention of a generation which had taken no previous interest in furniture design.
In the 1980s his output was defined by a prolific and inventive series of new chairs, tables and lamps that challenged the definitions of what design could be.
The book is illustrated with a wealth of striking images, many of them specially commissioned. Based on a series of episodes which focus on individual objects, families of designs, categories and activities, the book reflects Arad's own distinctive approach, offering a unique insight into the working process and creative thinking of this dazzlingly inventive designer.
