Neil Nenner and Avihai Mizrahi Biography

Israeli artists/designers Neil Nenner & Avihai Mizrahi reconfigure books without text. The book constitutes the material and cultural foundation of this project, which is a product of an encounter between a product designer and a graphic designer. The collaborative design epitomizes the essence of the book, corresponds with familiar archetypes, while also preserving the objects in a medial state between the conceptual and the practical.

The series, which uses the Corten surfaces as its cover, forges a relationship between paper and metal, which examines design issues such as: rigidity vs. flaccidity, imprisonment vs. freedom, structure vs. materiality, heat vs. cold. In many cases the roles are reversed: the metal receives a soft, paper-like appearance, and the piles of paper are transformed into a solid and inaccessible lump. This reversal also takes place in the manner in which the materials are processed (cutting the lump of paper with a Bandsaw, or folding the metal and roll forming it like a page of paper).

The series include 7 items and it was presented at the paper exhibition “On the Edge”, MUZA Eretz Israel Museum Tel –Aviv. March –October 2017. The work was published on some design and art websites and printed media like “Designboom”, Haaretz and De marker to name a few.

Both Neil Nenner and Avihai Mizrahi have a master’s degree in Industrial Design from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem.
