The Design Museum Holon in Israel presents a major interactive exhibition on the influences and relationships between design, architecture, matter and sound.
The Design Museum Holon presents “Sound and Matter in Design”, an exhibition examining the relationship between sound and design and the ways in which shapes, environments and everyday experiences are influenced by sound.
Upon arrival, visitors are confronted with the exhibition’s largest object, the Design Museum Holon iconic building designed by Ron Arad, which, already a “musical building” in its visual appearance, is itself transformed into a musical instrument through the site-specific installation “The Sound of Architecture”by Anat Saf-ran and Lila Chitayat.

Inside the Museum, the Upper Gallery features “Seeing Sound” an exhibition containing over 50 objects designed from the 1960s to the present, divided into three categories – stationary, mobile, and interactive objects. Located in the Dr. Shulamit Katzman Gallery is “Sensing Sound” – an interactive installation created in collaboration with eight sound artists.
