“We spend most of our time helping objects feel better about themselves"

Since our graduation from the Industrial Design department at HIT, we have been working side by side as partners in life and in the studio. We started working on our kitchen table, trying to carve our independent path of expressing our thoughts about design and our feelings towards objects.
Now, although the studio is more established, and the path seems somewhat clearer, we are keeping the excitement alive by blessing every opportunity to be completely ignorant, learning new skills and being bothered by new ideas. Design is neither our job nor our profession; it is completely weaved into our daily lives. Together, we are Reddish. 

 

Founded in 2002 by Naama Steinbock (1975) and Idan Friedman (1975) Reddish is a product design studio based in Jaffa, Israel. They operate in a territory in which designers work as researchers and creators, and function as cultural agents that mediates between people and objects. They offer new concepts and product planning for clients, as well as initiating design projects and curating exhibitions.  
Naama and Idan graduated with distinction from H.I.T (Holon Academic Institute of Technology, Israel) where Naama is a senior lecturer at the Industrial design department. Together they hold workshops and lectures both in Israel and abroad.
