Ron Arad

ALPHABET & NUMBERS

One of Britain's best-known designers, Ron Arad’s constant experimentation with the possibilities of materials such as steel, aluminum or polyamide and his radical reconception of the form and structure of furniture has put him at the forefront of contemporary design and architecture. He is an innovator on the edge of constant (and consistent) reinvention.

Based in London since the mid-1970s, Arad’s work has ranged in scale from bottles to museums, with some of his most captivating creations being commissioned by Swarovski, including the Crystal Palace initiative. Arad is a Professor Emeritus of the Royal College of Art, and was elected a Royal Academician in 2013.

In a new font designed for the project, Ron Arad introduces a crystal incarnation of the numbers 0 to 9 and the 26 letters of the alphabet titled ‘Alphabet & Numbers’. Precision-cut and standing either 22cm or 13.5cm tall, the characters also translate into unique square-form bookends where each figure has been cut from a crystal mass.
