Tell us a little about your background in design:

From a very young age, I was always very attracted to the world of visuals. Though I studied Graphic design & visual communication at Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem, and was an art director for 2 years, I realized I was drawn more to the 3D world rather than the 2D, and so found my self taking on my first Interior design project based on my knowledge of the visual design world.

How would you describe your personal design style?

My style varies from project to project, which I feel is a must, as each one has its own requirements, feel and vibe. A few key elements that do guide me are the concept, user experience and functionality. All my projects have a customer experience element to them, one either eats in them, sleeps in them, shops in them, or works in them.

Where does your design inspiration come from?

I draw inspiration from almost anything visual, art , fashion, cinema, theatre, architecture as well as none visual elements such as music that is something that transports me.


Name five key themes to consider when approaching design in 2023 and beyond.

  1. Practicality
  2. User Experience
  3. Environmentally conscious
  4. Visuality
  5. Price Point

If you could offer one piece of advice when it comes to design schemes, what would it be?

Be open to the exchange of ideas, don’t be rigid in your design approach. I believe we are never to old to learn and never too young to teach.

How important are The International Hotel & Property Awards?

I believe that anything that brings us together through common interest is important in the somewhat divided world we currently live in. in addition to that, its exposure and being exposed to other designers from around the world.

What projects are you currently working on?

The studio is currently working on several new projects, a few restaurants, large scale marketplace, Artificial surf park, an entertainment and lifestyle complex, a hotel and an office space.

What was your favourite project to work on and why?

My favourite project was my first interior design project I was responsible for. The excitement of going from 2D to 3D and seeing my vision come to life is a feeling that will forever live in me. Another that comes to mind, was Max Brenner in NYC, seeing the design and functionality study cases we did locally, hit the mark and be well received by the NYC market was thrilling.

What was your most challenging project to work on and why? 

Each project has its own set of challenges, that’s what keeps things exciting, but I can truly say I’ve had the privilege of only taking on projects I feel connected to.

In what direction do you feel that design is moving towards in a general sense?

Like many industries, technology has a major influence. We used to draw inspiration from Magazines, we then moved on to absorbing information from the Internet. Today, AI is the next chapter in design, and I believe it will lead us down a path that is more abstract and amorphic. 3D printing is a great example of it.

Which products/services could you not live without when designing?

Carpentry – it combines into it everything – warmth, texture, nature, functionality.

What are your aims and goals for the next twelve months?

After concentrating most of my efforts on growing my business locally, I’d like to focus on growing it international.
