Goldner Geva is an Israeli design studio carving the way forward with their unique combination of materials and technology. Carbon fibres are bonded with wood in a technique derived from the aviation and space industry. Together, they unite the advanced Hi-Tech world with the most ancient of construction materials. With the resulting hybrid, “solid wood takes on a virtuosic flexibility formal, exposing it in a brand new and amazing way,” as Gal Golder explains.
One half of the design duo with Iftah Geva, Goldner trained as a mechanical engineer, while Geva studied industrial design at the Holon Institute of Technology. Together, they are opening up new paths in woodwork to create curved, polished works that emphasise the natural beauty of the wood as much as the inherent strength of the carbon fibres.
