NISSIM PORAT

Nissim Porat is an industrial designer born and raised in Israel. He was trained in Industrial Design at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design from 1985-1989. Porat uses design to express the diversity and intrigue of his travels around the world, particularly of ancient symbols and conflicts in the Middle East. Porat is a socialist, thus his designs are influenced by minimalism and symbolism. In terms of materials, he is a metal specialist. Porat helps us connect with his designs’ origins by bringing minimal change to their original materials. As a result, we are highly aware of the materials used as we experience his designs - almost as if we were the creators, studying the possible uses of our raw resources.

THE TREE

The Tree
 

The Drifter, the Clan of Or, guided by a sign. 
The Presence, a symbol to encourage, to represent the ONE who is Shepherd, Provider, as Servant!


The Providence, a constant reminder of the existence and perseverance.
Leading in wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge

 

In no other shadow, is the Drifter’s existence reminded and established.
In no other shadow, is the Clan of Or’s light, able to shine from them and through them.
All from the ONE!

The Tree.

Porat has won a number of awards for his designs and exhibited in well-known, international fairs. He is not just an acclaimed designer, he is passionate about relaying his knowledge on to students of design. He teaches in various renowned institutions.
