with time we became a focal point for many designers and artists. actually all the neighberhood become the "soho" of tel aviv
(still is). being a platform for the fast growing design scene of tel aviv, we invited
some collegues to start a design cooperative, cactus, for home made israeli products.
gad charni - home industrial design,
tali lev charni - textile and accessories,
dalia levin - jewlery,
efrat zaksenberg - jelery,
vera valerstein - textile design,
shai barkan - design, (joined later) hans and ilana with plastic plus.
we added another room to the shop and opened a gallery for design, inviting a wide range of artists, designers, architects, etc. for group exhibitions in our design gallery.
it gave us a good deadline for projects!
