This June, the Jerusalem Design Week will host 150 Israeli and international designers, displaying their work in more than 30 exhibits, alongside lectures, workshops, film screenings, and other engaging activities.

Under the theme “conserve,” the exhibitions and events discuss conservation, our relationship with our future through our current social, cultural, and technological systems and the potential power of design to play a role.

Held in a variety of public spaces in Jerusalem, the exhibitions and events will focus on the human mission of preservation. For example, designer Guy Mishali and Architect Nati Tonklrot invite the audience to bring items to add to a unique vacuum packaging installation art piece, the Magenta Studio constructed a large-scale interactive colorful reinterpretation of ping-pong, and Hansen’s rear terrace will transform into a unique sort of white archaeological site with 15 tons of salt.
