From 5 September\, Ivorypress will host a solo exhibition of architect and designer Ron Arad (Tel Aviv\, 1951). The show&mdash\;as part of the annual architecture programme celebr ated each autumn at Ivorypress to mark the beginning of the season&mdash\;c overs the achievements and the latest work of this label-defying artist who has been based in London since the 1970s.

\n

The exhibition\, which w ill run until 9 November\, shows his singular perspective on architecture\, design and the artistic object. With his interest in experimentation as a starting point\, Ron Arad studies the expressive possibilities of different materials such as steel\, aluminium\, Corian and polyethylene.

\n

His approach to form and structure has a freedom which is unlimited by links o r borders. &lsquo\;The principle is that everything should be based on some thing that didn&rsquo\;t exist before&rsquo\;\, says Arad. In line with thi s philosophy\, the show includes some of his most iconic works along with i ndustrially produced objects and several mock-ups and architectural project s.

\n

Among Arad&rsquo\;s latest experiments that will be on show at I vorypress Space\, the Folly bench (2013) is particularly worthy of mention. Made by rotational moulding\, Folly constitutes a large sculptural object composed of soft lines that endow it with great vitality. Movement\, whether in his functional creations or in his purely aesthetic pieces\, is always the main element of his work.

\n

Also among the obj ects on show is Blame the Tools (2013)\, in line with Arad&rsquo\; s early works made of waste materials. Additionally\, the selection include s the workstation No Bad Colours (2013)\, which is the source of a nother experimental line of inquiry\, centred on technological components r ather than on plastic or ergonomic value. The exhibition at Ivorypress Spac e provides the opportunity to observe the diversity of his work and to re-e xamine his creative production.

\n

Ron Arad received his training from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design\, in Jerusalem\, and the Architectur al Association School of Architecture\, in London. In 1981 he founded the O ne Off design and production studio with Caroline Thorman and in 1989 he cr eated the Ron Arad architecture and design studio. He has also been Profess or of Design Products at Royal College of Art in London from 1998 to 2009.< /p>\n

Ron Arad has exhibited his work at galleries and museums such as th e Victoria and Albert Museum in London\, Centre Georges Pompidou in Par&iac ute\;s\, MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) in New York and Barbican Art Gallery i n London.
