ZALKIND studio was founded in 2017 by Chen Zalkind, is based in Kvutzat Yavne (next to Tel Aviv)
It is a young and energetic studio, full of creativity, curiosity, innovation and a passion for creating.
The studio focuses on designing and manufacturing furniture and products in a variety of technologies and materials.
The development process for each product starts from the research stage then continues on to concept development all while engaging with the material in the workshop, then prototyping and finally manufacturing and creating a product.
In addition to creating our own products in small series, we also provide design and implementation services for architects and individual clients.
Chen graduated with Honors from the Department of Industrial Design at the Holon Institute of Technology. He was raised on a kibbutz, in the vicinity of many industrial factories and workshops, it was there that he learnt about many different kinds of technologies and how to work with varied materials. This created a foundation for him and has helped and inspired him in his studies and in the development of many projects.
“Ever since I was a young boy I would spend all of my free time at the different workshops in my neighborhood, I would absorb, learn and experiment. It was from then that I fell in love with materials and the production process.”
