Since 2002, Dror Benshetrit has developed an interdisciplinary practice specializing in innovative design projects. His approach to design has shown breadth and depth through the completion of projects varying in scales and nature. His portfolio encompasses product design, architecture projects, interior design, graphic design, and art direction. He explores the nature of movement, space and forms and shares with us the transformative power of design through each of his creations. Dror’s perception of the world was enriched by travels across Europe and multi-cultural experiences. He received his education at the Eindhoven Design Academy in Holland. Dror has long been interested in the complexity of the manifold meanings and uses that intersect at a single object. Rooted in a rigorous approach and methodology of movement, every project is driven with the desire to unleash the mutable and non-static nature of objects. Dror observes the world from an inquisitive eye, seeking responses to the needs of our modern lifestyle. Each project starts with questions and triggers an immersive investigation. In collaboration with a team of experts, Dror conducts thorough research focusing on materials, technology and geometry. Based in New York, he works with clients around the world; including Alessi, Bentley, Boffi, Bombay Sapphire, Cappellini, Kiehl’s, Levi’s, Lualdi, Material ConneXion, Maya Romanoff, Marithé + François Girbaud, Puma, Rosenthal, Skins Footwear, Yigal Azrouël, Shvo, Swarovski, and Target.
