From Aug. 2 through Oct. 19, catch a new exhibition highlighting the work of designer Ron Arad at the MoMA in New York. Ron Arad: No Discipline showcases the work of this powerhouse designer. From chandeliers to architectural spaces and furniture, Arad's unwillingness to stay within one design discipline has helped him to succeed in many.
Paola Antonelli, the MoMA's senior curator notes that:
Arad is well known for his iconoclastic disregard for disciplines — and, at least apparently, for discipline. He has defined much of the current panorama of design, inspiring a generation of practitioners who disregard established modes of practice in favor of mutant design careers that are flexible enough to encompass the range of contemporary design applications, from interactions and interfaces to furniture and shoes.

Featuring around 140 of Arad's industrial designs, studio pieces, and architecture, the exhibit showcases the designer's mastery of different mediums, including fiberoptics, thermoplastics, aluminum, and steel. Check out his iconic designs, as well as some you've never seen before. The exhibit moves to Paris in the Fall.
