Vegan Design should Be Developed By Vegan Designers
Breakfast Lecture by EREZ NEVI PANA while meeting for vegan breakfast. After adopting a vegan lifestyle, Erez Nevi Pana says other designers should follow in his footsteps to help solve the problems facing the world. In his work, he is questioning materials and „the atrocious reality of animals concocted within our objects“ – the promise of his exploration is the possibility of conscious and guilt-free vegan artefacts
Erez Nevi Pana
(1983) is an explorer who uses design as a significant tool to investigate phenomena through material experimentation. Nevi Pana earned his BA in design from the Holon Institute of Technology and an MA from the Design Academy Eindhoven where his thesis focused on the recrystallization of salt. In 2015, Nevi Pana formed La Terrasse in Eindhoven as a platform for designers, artists, writers and thinkers to work closely together, share their thoughts on a central theme and realize their visions. The Design Museum Holon recently acquired two of Nevi Pana’s works developed from an organic material mixture of soil and fungi for their permanent collection, in addition to three salt pieces from his solo exhibition at the museum. Nevi Pana practice research and design around the world as a doctoral student of Prof. Ton Matton, investigating the topic of vegan design.
