Legendary designer chooses resilient and flexible ARPRO? for Design Show   Print  
Ron Arad, the designer and architect, has chosen ARPRO? for his design show, ?No Discipline?. Thursday, 8th January 2009

Paris exhibit uses ARPRO for concepts display

Ron Arad, the designer and architect, has chosen ARPRO® for his design show, ‘No Discipline’. The show required functional ‘eyeballs’ to hold and angle digital picture frames towards the viewer, with ARPRO being selected for its flexibility in this challenging task.

“For ‘No Discipline’, we want our portfolio retrospective of 2D concept work on display, and digital photo frames would be the ideal format for this,” explains Ron Arad, founder of Ron Arad Associates. "As the main display is made up of a wall of tubes, we decided on an eyeball design to contain the frames and sit within the tube. The design had to be light and robust enough to hold the picture frame in place.”
