Omer Arbel

Omer Arbel (born 1976) leads Omer Arbel Office (or OAO), a Vancouver-based design practice which aims to collapse traditional boundaries between the professions of building and industrial design, craft and materials research. OAO focuses on experimenting with material properties and fabrication methodology. The practice produces designs for buildings, objects, furniture, lighting and electrical accessories. Arbel is also the creative director of manufacturing and design company Bocci.

 

Since then, several of Arbel's design pieces have gone into widespread production, most notably the 14 series chandelier, and 22 series plug socket, which also won a 2009 red dot design award. Arbel was awarded the commission to design the 2010 Winter Olympic medals, in collaboration with Artist Corrine Hunt. Arbel is the recipient of the Canada Council’s 2010 Ron Thom early design achievement Award.
