I recently discovered a great blog on Israeli design by Ziva Haller called Designist Dream (say designist slowly). She reports on furniture, decor, fashion and all things design-related going on in Israel or abroad by her Israeli compatriots.

The Clover chair by Ron Arad for Driade:
The Bigwire table by Arik Levy for Zanotta:
