Naama Agassi

Tel Aviv, Israel

Designer and artist Naama Agassi was born in 1983 in Tel Aviv, Israel. She received a Bachelor’s degree in industrial design from the Holon Institute of Technology (HIT) in 2011 and a Master’s degree in contextual design from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2016. In 2016, she returned to Tel Aviv to establish her eponymous design studio, which specializes in unique furniture, lighting elements, and sculpted, functional objects.

Agassi approaches her objects as a means to communicate an array of conceptual frameworks. Her works frequently focus on exploring the sculptural abilities of various materials, such as artificial marble, granolith, and natural pigments—researching the utilization of self-made materials in semi-industrial processes.

Agassi's work has been presented in museums and exhibitions around the world, including The Victoria and Albert Museum in London (2015); Barcelona Design Week, (2016); Milan Design Week (2017); Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design (2017);Seoul Design Week (2018); Holon Design Museum (2017 and 2019); and Fresh Paint ArtFair in Tel Aviv (2019).
