The Future of Industrial Design
Almost 30 years ago, Ron Arad hit it big in the design world with a living-room chair made from the seat of a junked car. The Rover Chair, named for the British car maker whose bucket seat he repurposed, redefined industrial chic and made him famous.
Since then, Mr. Arad, the industrial designer, artist and architect who headed the design products department at London’s Royal College of Art until last year, has pushed his field into new areas with innovative materials and shapes in furniture, fashion, art and architecture.
