Raw Edges at DesignMiami
One of the many fantastic “design performances” that took place at Design Miami/ and FENDI´s Craft Punk exhibition at the Salone di Mobile was from design duo, Raw Edges.
The Design Miami/ site explains, “ This professional collaboration between Yael Mer & Shay Alkalay began after many years of sharing life, ideas and everything in between. Yael’s main focus includes turning 2-D sheet materials into curvaceous functional forms, whereas Shay is fascinated by how things move, function and react. Together they work under the name Raw-Edges and share a common goal to create objects that have never been seen before.”
Interestingly, Raw Edges chose to work with the DuPont material, Tyvek, during their performance while designer Saskia Diez debuted another Tyvek creation recently which focuses on fashion design, rather than industrial/product design.
