Come to Hansen House for a unique showcase of Jerusalem Design Week’s International Team. 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.
