The Parentesit collection is exhibited at "Sound and Matter in Design" exhibition at Holon's Design Museum in Israel.
The Museum, created by Ron Arad and inaugurated in 2010, has quickly established itself as one of the world's leading museums of design and contemporary culture.
The "Sound and Matter in Design" exhibition, which can be visited from June 29th to October 28th 2017, is divided into two galleries and examines the relationship between sound and design and the way in which forms, environment and experiences are influenced by it. The Superior Gallery "Seeing Sound", edited by Anat Safran, Lila Chatayat and Elisabetta Pisu, features over 50 items designed from the 1960s to present, that recount the evolution of stereo systems and speakers, as well as contemporary pieces that constitute furnishing accessories for the living room.
The exhibition spaces are divided into three categories: fixed, mobile and interactive objects that exemplify the conceptual shift from object design to design of a user experience.
The curators have selected a composition of two Parentesit equipped with speakers and ambient light as an exhibition item for its intrinsic features combining design and lighting, innovativeness, harmonious lines, versatility. Features that clearly express the key concepts of the exhibition. The participation at the exhibition was possible thanks to the support of Arper’s dealer Pitaro.
The Lower Gallery, "Sensing of Sound", instead presents an interactive installation designed as an open platform that includes sound works translated into visual representations influenced by the movement of the visitors.
