Camels are juxtaposed with jets and ancient texts are explored as fervently as the frontiers of modern science. The wisdom of the ages provides a solid foundation for innovation. This is fertile ground for creative minds.
Drawing inspiration from these influences, Nelly Cohen, contemporary Israeli designer, combines old world craftsmanship with leading edge technology.
Nelly, a graduate of Haifa University with a master's degree in French literature has integrated her love of poetry into her designs.
"I start with words," she says. "The lyric precedes the design…when I hear the rhythm I know a winner is born."
