Recently New York’s MoMA opened ‘No Discipline’, an exhinition dedicated to the comprehensive work of Ron Arad.

‘No Discipline’ celebrates the designer’s interdisciplinary and “no-disciplinary” spirit. Physical concepts are traced through works in different materials and scales, and objects are grouped in families based on a shared form, material, technique, or structural idea. The exhibition culminates in Arad’s structure ‘Cage sans Frontières’, a giant twisted shelf that cradles all the other works.

The exhibition is on view from 2 August to October 19, 2009. Find more information on the informative exhibition’s website.
