In 1993, Ron Arad unveiled his iconic creation, the “Empty Chair,” as part of his collaboration with Driade. Crafted with meticulous precision, this vintage design masterpiece seamlessly merges aluminum and molded plywood, epitomizing the essence of minimalist and postmodern aesthetics. The chair’s color palette, featuring a blend of blonde and silver hues, adds a touch of sophistication to its sleek and timeless design.

Arad and his team embarked on a relentless exploration of materials and techniques, pushing the boundaries of design.
