The Void Stool/Side Table is an investigation into negative space. Structured in the shape of a stool's shipping crate, the Void was originally built out of cheap plywood and crafted using crate-making techniques. It can be used as a stool or side table, and has storage space in its hollows. RON GILAD was included in the Design Life Now: National Design Triennial 2006.

Designer RON GILAD creates functional and minimalist objects, instilled with humor, elegance and sophisticated wit. He deconstructs the function of an object down to its basics, frequently starting with found objects and reinterpreting them into something else. GILAD’S hybrid objects combine material essence with aesthetic play, blurring the line between the functional and the abstract.

RON GILAD was born in Tel Aviv in 1972. He graduated with a degree in Industrial Design from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, Israel. He moved to New York in 2001 and co-founded Designfenzider, from where he designs, produces and distributed his work. He has also taught at Pratt Institute in New York since 2006. His work is part of the permanent collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Arts and Design and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
