”…The designer in our modern consumer-based society is sometimes mistakenly seen as the one who has to feed the system. Keep it going by inventing and reinventing, shaping and reshaping, making new things for the sake of being new… Whereas questioning all that seems at times out of the question. I try to question, to look for questions that are interesting enough to answer. It is as part of looking at design as methodical process. It is a way of working and of a way to look at things.”
After several years as a designer at Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design, and earlier graduating from the design academy in Eindhoven; Nitzan Cohen established his own design practice- Studio Nitzan Cohen. A multi disciplinary design studio engaged in projects ranging from industrial products, furniture and spaces to art-direction and strategic consultancy.
