Description This 'Kuramura Pollock (Ocean)' Armchair is a unique piece handcrafted by Ayala Serfaty. Work by the artist is notably included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Arts and Design in New York.

Since the 1990’s Ayala Serfaty has forged a unique path in the world of contemporary design, creating and crafting conceptual lights and furniture. Her work has been described by scholars as ‘multi-disciplinary’, as ‘fusion of art, craft, and design’, and as defusing the line between the natural and the abstract. Her approach focuses on ancient traditions, striving to revive their spirit and energies in unorthodox, unexpected, and innovative manner.

Ayala Serfaty creates furniture made of handmade textile, crafting 'nuno felt' out of wool, linen and silk fibers which she carefully gathers from all over the world. The artist weaves the fibers as a painter would mix paint on a pallet. The result resembles a rocky or rough surface but is very soft to the touch. This furniture defies the usual sensory frontiers while incarnating the physical, terrestrial character of life.

Ayala Serfaty was born in Tel Aviv in 1962. She is a graduate in Fine Arts of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem, and of the Middlesex Polytechnic in London. She lives and works in Tel Aviv. For over twenty years she has exhibited in museums worldwide such as the London Design Museum, the Cooper Hewitt Museum, le Centre Georges Pompidou, just to name a few. Her work is included in the permanent collections of numerous museums in the US: Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY, Museum of Arts and Design, NY, Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Mint Museum, Corning Museum of Glass, Indianapolis Museum of Art.
