For Jerusalem Design Week 2019, Kacper Hamilton was invited to participate in the international teams' program. Israeli and International designers were paired together to create specifically themed installations, which were the main exhibition of the design week.
The theme of the design week was ‘EAST’ and Kacper Hamilton was partnered with Israeli designer, Bar Horowitz. They were commissioned to explore the influences of the East on the West and their focus became the subject of privacy and how it may change in the future in the Western world.

A new set of Minarets by Kacper Hamilton and Ezgi Turksoy have been included in an exhibition in Bordeaux, France. La Cité du Vin presents Mind-blowing! When art and design take on glass from 15 March to 30 June 2019.
Nearly a hundred glass exhibits produced in the past twenty years were unvelied by the Foundation for wine culture and civilisations. Glass artworks, drawings, projects and performances as well as video works to explore, through the exhibition, the creative process of transformation. From sand to glass, from grape to wine, from the utilitarian object to the original work.
The bottle, the carafe or the drinking glass are therefore the starting point for a broader reflection, leading to the creative diversions of artists and designers who invent unusual and often poetic works.
By focusing on transformation and in particular glassmaking processes that combine tradition and experimentation, the exhibition also echoes the winemaker's craft, following the work of Stéphane Derenoncourt (biodynamic producer) over the course of a vintage.
Mind-blowing! has been created by the Foundation for wine culture and civilisations and guest curator Bettina Tschumi.

Five foreign designers, hailing from Hong Kong, London, Vienna, Eindhoven, and Spain, will be collaborating with four Israeli designers to build four new projects over the next three months, an annual highlight of Jerusalem Design Week. In Facing the East - each of these outstanding designers will discuss their past creations. Their presentations include a scale that measures time, a computer made of textiles, a documentary on the founder of e-commerce site Alibaba, and a keyboard that feels like skin.
Jerusalem Design Week is the leading project of Hansen House, a center for design, media, and technology. The event is initiated by the Ministry of Jerusalem and Heritage, The Jerusalem development authority, and supported by The Jerusalem Foundation.
'Temple' Chandelier is composed of thirty-seven illuminated hand-blown glass elements, which sit in a precise, symmetrical and harmonious geometry atop a large suspended spun-brass dish. The design echoes the forms found within Ancient Egyptian architecture and is reminiscent of a celestial temple or mystic mausoleum.
Presented by Priveekollektie at The Armoury, Park Avenue. 9-13 November 2017.

Come admire lightness-inspired design objects and some of Rado's latest standout timepieces at the #Rado Gallery in Basel "Designing Lightness" curated by Lidewij Edelkoort for Rado.
The contemporary design scene is on a quest for lightness. From the streamlining of ceramics to the use of transparencies or the injection of air, objects are set afloat and embedded with an ethereal energy that corresponds to our desire for a lighter existence. Material is the message and mindfulness is the movement.
Rado has invited world‐renowned trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort to curate a design exhibition that illustrates this tendency. By bringing together innovative works by international designers, Edelkoort and her team will show how a “weightless” socio‐cultural philosophy is being previewed in design today.
Exhibition Designing Lightness by Lidewij Edelkoort:
Open from March 17 – 21, 2016, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Graf & Schelble Art Gallery
