In the first major retrospective of Ron Arad’s work on US-soil, the “No Discipline” exhibit will begin later this summer on August 2nd. The approximately two month long exhibition will include a wealth of design highlights from the accomplished creative with his visionary approach to ” form, structure, technology, and materials” on display which has earned him such a great following. Of the over 140 works of art, some will be featured in special structures designed by Michael Castellan of Ron Arad Associates. The structure titled Cage San Frontières (Cage Without Frontiers) is a massive 126.5 feet (38.5 meters) long structure and measures at over 16 feet (5 meters) in height. Each of the 240 cells creates a reflective effect on the objects inside. In addition to this masterful piece of work comes some of Ron Arad’s most recognizable works such as the Rover Chair (1981), the Concrete stereo (1983), the Bookworm Bookshelves (1993) and more contemporary works such as the Lamp Pizzakobra (2008). The event as mentioned begins August 2nd and runs until October 19th at New York’s MoMA.
