Following four years of construction, Design Museum Holon has announced January 31st 2010 as the greatly anticipated inauguration date of the award-winning building by Ron Arad Architects.
Constructed of five sinuous bands of varying shades of COR-TEN (weathered steel), Design Museum Holon is Arad’s first architectural project of this scale and the pinnacle of a sixteen-year urban regeneration programme, a process which is transforming the city of Holon, central Israel, into a global epicentre for culture and education.
The design museum building will be inaugurated with a gala event six weeks prior to the opening of the first exhibition to allow attendees and visitors an opportunity to experience the building’s architecture as the original design object of the museum.
Opening Exhibition, 4th March 2010 (private view 3rd March): The State of Things: Design and the 21st Century, will present more than 100 products that collectively tell the story of the practice, consumption, and the cultural impact of contemporary product design.
