Ariel Lavian collects raw materials from his studio’s yard then, he cleans, cuts and sorts the substances into different types and finally assembles them into new compositions. The studio is an economic-productive autonomous unit. The designer creates new worlds from the limited resources and finds tremendous wealth in the soil, the rotting logs, the wasps’ nest and the branches of the trees. Lavian creates small but complete scenes of staged nature, ex-wild.
“My design is influenced by the raw materials surrounding me, Usually those that are used and forgotten: broken objects, old plastic bags, magazines, it can be anything. I refer to the material and not to the product, study it, understand its properties and use it to create new objects. I believe that through design- as a tool- I can make a change, make a difference, affect people”, he explains.
