Synopsis: Book by Collings Matthew

Biographie de l'auteur: Ron Arad was born in Tel Aviv in 1951 and in 1973 moved to London to attend the Architectural Association. In the early 1980s, he set up the design studio and workshop One Off Ltd with Caroline Thorman, which was superseded in 1989 by Ron Arad Associates, an architecture and design practice. In 1997, Arad was appointed Professor of Furniture Design at the Royal College of Art in London, and two years later became the college's Professor of Industrial Design. Arad has consistently created innovative furniture and product designs, many of which have been produced by some of the world's most important furniture manufacturers, including Cappellini, Kartell, Moroso and Vitra. He is also an active figure in the architectural field, producing a number of memorable building projects and public sculptures. Arad lives in London with his wife and their children.
Matthew Collings was born in London in 1955. He attended the Byam Shaw School of Painting in the 1970s, and in 1992, completed an MA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College. A former editor of Art scribe magazine and art critic for BBC2's The Late Show, Collings won a BAFTA award in
1998 for Channel Four's This is Modern Art, a series he both wrote and presented. Since then he has written and presented two more TV series, Hello Culture (2001) and Matt's Old Masters (2003). Collings has also written several books on art, including Blimey!, It Hurts, Art Crazy Nation, This is Modern Art, a monograph on Sarah Lucas and Matt's Old Masters. Collings lives in London with his wife.
