Michael Tsinzovsky’s Israel-inspired collection

Michael Tsinzovsky has shown great interest for the Israeli culture, especially in the domain that interested him and which is furniture design. He closely observed all the details and after feeling confident enough he came up with his own furniture collection that is supposed to be a close representation of the Israeli culture.

The collection is composed of stools, chairs and a table. All the pieces share similar designs and similar details and decorative patterns. The stools are part of the  ‘asli’ series. They are three and they feature specific designs. Actually, the shape and form is the same but the aspect differs. The techniques used to produces each of the three items are pressure molding galvanized steel, african walnut which has been CNC cut and laser cut veneer on oriented strand board (OSB). The materials also differ.The ‘co-existence’ is composed of chairs and table designs. They look simple but yet sophisticated. I don’t have a lot of information and knowledge in order to criticise this collection but to me it doesn’t look very traditional. It might be because it’s a modern adaptation of the actual designs.

Anyway, it’s an interesting collection that allows us to catch a glimpse at foreign cultures and maybe appreciate them better after the experience. Still, I would have liked the designer to give more specific information related to the actual traditional elements.{found on designboom}
