Private Residence, Jerusalem
A sliding door hides the television. When the door does not hide the TV it acts as a decorative element within the space.
Hidden door. The top rail is hidden inside the ceiling. The door itself is made of blackened bronze. The library is made of the same material. There was a request for a wall decoration made up of seven cubes, where each cube has a different depth and the connectors between them are hidden. The result: seemingly, each cube is within a cube. Three travertine shelves in a grayish shade. In this instance the architect Ilan Pivko designed the item.
