Best Furniture Designs: Ehud Oren’s Photosynthesys Collection

On the Best Furniture Designs, Israeli artist Ehud Oren presents ‘Photosynthesis’ at Braverman Gallery in Tel Aviv. Curated by New York-based design studio Ghiora Aharoni, the furniture objects on show are a reinterpretation of the mundane, as Oren shrouds domestic items, such as a bench, dresser, and armoires, with printed photographs of every day street-scapes of Tel Aviv and New York City. The juxtaposition of exterior and interior objects and landscapes prompts the viewer to question notions of routine and familiarity. The quotidian critique celebrates the seemingly stagnant surroundings and realities most individuals take for granted.

Easily the best pieces of ‘Photosynthesis’ are the cabinets designed to look like apartments. It is nearly impossible to discern the doors and drawers in the cabinets, which look more like miniature models of apartment buildings than anything else. The pieces that aren’t disguised as apartments are equally as incredible, with the bundle of cardboard dresser being something that I could easily envision owning. If you are into deceptive furniture designs, then you will definitely want to check out ‘Photosynthesis’ from Ehud Oren.
