Event Details

THE LISA ROBERTS AND DAVID SELTZER INTEGRATED PRODUCT DESIGN LECTURE
DROR BENSHETRIT
Founder, Dror
6:30 PM, Meyerson Hall, B1
210 S. 34th Street, Philadelphia

 

Since 2002, Dror Benshetrit has developed an interdisciplinary practice specializing in innovative design projects. His approach to design has shown breadth and depth through the completion of projects varying in scales and nature. His portfolio encompasses product design, architecture projects, interior design and art direction. He explores the nature of movement, space and forms and shares with us the transformative power of design through each of his creations. Dror’s perception of the world was enriched by travels across Europe and multi-cultural experiences. He received his education at the Eindhoven Design Academy in Holland. Dror has long been interested in the complexity of the manifold meanings and uses that intersect at a single object. Rooted in a rigorous approach and methodology of movement, every project is driven with the desire to unleash the mutable and non-static nature of objects. Dror observes the world from an inquisitive eye, seeking responses to the needs of our modern lifestyle. Each project starts with questions and triggers immersive investigations. In collaboration with a team of experts, Dror conducts thorough research focusing on materials, technology and geometry. Based in New York, he works with clients around the world; including Alessi, Bentley, Boffi, Bombay Sapphire, Cappellini, Kiehl’s, Levi’s, Lualdi, Material ConneXion, Maya Romanoff, Marithé + François Girbaud, Puma, Rosenthal, Skins Footwear, Yigal Azrouël, Shvo, Swarovski, and Target.

Dror has lectured around the world and received numerous design awards including the GE Plastics Competition “Merging Boundaries” (2001), iF Product Design Award (2006), the Good Design Award (2008, 2010), and the Red Dot Award (2012). He has gained international media exposure, and has been widely exhibited. His work is included in the permanent collections of major museums in North America, Europe and the Middle East.

PennDesign is an inventive place of learning where the many fields of architecture, planning, preservation, landscape and the fine arts come together on shared ground. At PennDesign, we are dedicated to design that is creative in nature and transformative in impact. In a collaborative environment that fosters inquiry and experimentation, faculty and students seek to recast the distinction between theory and practice, expand knowledge and invention through research, and contribute works of value and beauty.
