ROME (JTA) — An exhibition showcasing the work of 45 Israeli designers will be featured at the International Furniture Salon trade fair in Milan.
Called "Promisedesign 2011 — New Design from Israel," the exhibition, which runs through April 17, features more than 65 innovative design projects ranging from furniture to light fixtures to technological products to automobile parts.
Curators Vanni Pasca and Ely Rozenberg said the aim was to "present the multiple faces of design in Israel," a reality they said had been dubbed "the best-kept secret in the world of design."
After Milan, the exhibit will be shown in other European countries, including France. The curators said its display in June will mark the first time an Israeli design exhibit is shown in Paris.
