My colleagues Christina Schütz, Isabel Oestreich, Tatjana Krischik and I have brought back a number of special stories about the designers from Israel and Palestine that participated at the ECO DESIGN FORUM (EDF). They are all the creators of innovative green ideas, projects and products that bring with them a great deal of inspiration, courage and creativity! The success of the EDF was due in large part to the intercultural exchange and international sustainable art and design networking between Palestinian, Israeli and German designers from the partner cities Tel Aviv, Bethlehem and Cologne as well as the Turkish and Spanish partners from Istanbul and Barcelona.
In the afternoon we were going on a field trip to meet protagonists of the local deisgn, art and sustainablity scene of Tel Aviv:
A social project striving to design beautiful handmade objects
Creating positive spaces and natural hosts of people in the city
Living artifacts that create a unique natural sense and presence in any environment.
