Night Light Festival - Integrated Design Lab
Night Light Festival - Integrated Design Lab
Location: Neve Sha’anan, Tel Aviv
The Night Light Festival, aims to brighten the impoverished neighborhood and bring residents of more affluent areas of Tel Aviv to Neve Sha’anan to visit, and ultimately to improve the area’s reputation.
Our project was to refurbish an Ethiopian café through all tangents of design disciplines.
I worked on this project during my exchange semester in Holon Institute of Technology, Israel.
The cafe: Ideation for designing the patio. Utilizing the existing aspects of light and shadow, walls and textures to add a sense of play.

MOLET Workshop- The task I was given was to create benches and tables from reclaimed wood extracted from palet boxes.
Creating stools and excerpts from MOLET.
Work in Progress, while making the stools.
The discarded palets which we collected from around Tel Aviv. The act of making the furniture was very spontaneous as we had to figure out the quality of wood, the varying of lengths of wood due to existing nail insertions in between.

The entire work process at the site was fun as the surrounding Ethiopian community became a part of it. Kids helped us paint while adding their own patterns with tape on the wall. Our intervention was merged with the perspectives of how the neighborhood envisioned the cafe to be.

The furniture made from reclaimed wood help minimize the entire cost.  :)
