Nilly Mozer was born and raised in Tel Aviv, and is a designer whose work lies in a sphere where design and art overlap. Her different artworks serve as a means to explore the boundaries of each of the two disciplines. Her artwork appears to hold the functionality and usability of everyday objects, yet often serves only the function of causing artistic reaction. In each of her projects, Mozer explores materiality and functionality. The salient qualities embodied in her work are repetition and humor.
The NaOr candle stand represents, and acquires its name from, the union of salt and
light. As a collaboration with artist-designer Nilly Mozer, the candle stand is made
entirely of salt and white cement. The dichotomy between Dead Sea Salt and white
cement has produced a roughness and imperfection that have actually become its
mark of uniqueness.
BEHOLD THE BEAUTY, WITHIN
Made seemingly of marble but, in actuality, consist of just two raw ingredients, Nilly Mozer’s intent was to emphasize the consolidation of two completely different elements – white cement is for industrial usage, while the salt she uses is 100% organic and from Dead Sea.
Mozer earned her Bachelor’s degree in Design and Arts from Holon Institute of Technology,
as well as a Teaching Certificate from Tel Aviv University.
She finds her multidisciplinary training enables her to make extraordinary use of traditional and up-to-date technologies available to her as a creator.
