Ron Gilad (1972-) is one of the most famous and appreciated contemporary Israeli designers. His creations are imbued with an almost metaphysical value, which transcends the simple shape of the object, reaching almost dreamlike shapes, yet always rich in innate elegance. An uncompromising artist's vision, in which, however, abstraction manages to combine with the daily functionality of his creations. Born in Tel Aviv, in 2001 he emigrated to New York and there he devoted himself above all to the creation of unique or limited series pieces, some of which are included in the permanent collections of the main museums of the city such as MoMA. His return to Europe, where he divides his time between Milan and Tel Aviv, was immediately crowned with great success: in 2013 he was elected "designer of the year" by two of the most important magazines in the sector, Elle Decor and Wallpaper. In the same period he began an important collaboration with Molteni & C., for which he designed several best-sellers over the years and also the spectacular "Glass Cube" pavilion attached to the company headquarters. His other important partnerships also include those with Flos, Danese Milano, Moooi, Cassina, Adele-C, Glas Italia, Salvatori and Magis.
