Based in Israel, Alon Dodo designs and creates contemporary pieces in hard wood all the while,employing traditional-artisan techniques. Filled with belief, it is the manual labor and the integrity of the material that bestow character and soul to his work. You'll find his unique pieces designed in essential, simple lines that allow the material to shine and empower it even further. Alon manipulates wood in order to achieve new textures along with combining various materials such as leather, copper, brass, iron, korian and marble. Alon also uses an ancient technique called inlay, in which wood is stamped into wood or even other materials with butterfly X-patch connectors. With his inspiration emanating from material and technique, the perfection of imperfection and the tension between gentle and rough, wild and tamed are his formula.
