We are giving you a glimpse of her profile, her debut as an industrial designer, her collection and future projects.
Name: Sharon Sides
When did you realized that designing was your passion?
When I decided to be an industrial designer I was working in a big international company. At first, I thought of interior design but as I started exploring the design world I knew I was destined for industrial design. I quit my job and started my studies at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. From the beginning I knew I made the right choice; the continuous strive for knowledge and the passion to create and innovate inspired me to keep up the hard work.
The pieces from “Stumps Collection” are the first pieces created as a professional industrial designer?
Yes, STUMPS is my first collection.
How “Stumps Collection” was born?
STUMPS deals with the transference of images from nature to design projects using technology.
The design process offered the different outlook on a tree trunk, which is normally associated with beams utilizing its length, and focused on the rings that appear on the actual stump. This point of departure presents us with a new morphology.
The pattern implies on the history of the tree as well as its age.
As part of the project, patterns of tree stumps were etched on metal. The metal sheets were bent into chairs, when the outline of the tree stump was kept intact.
Shaping and bending each piece took into account the original outline of the tree stump, consequently bestowing each piece with its own unique character.
Do you intend to add more elements to “Stumps Family” or we are going to have some novelties regarding a new collection?
In addition to the 3 original STUMPS chairs, I launched a few months ago stools, bar stools and coffee tables. I am also working on a new family member of the collection, which was not revealed yet.
Have you ever designed in collaboration with studios, brands or individual designers?
The STUMPS collection gained worldwide recognition, was exhibited in design studios abroad and published in design magazines such as Dezeen, designboom, Casa vogue, AA13 etc.
In addition to that I am working for prop Ezri Tarazi, a worldwide known industrial designer.
How do you characterize your design process and design pieces?
My work process always starts with a comprehensive research inclusive of interviews, observations and material researches. In each project I integrate the product necessities and requirements with my interpretation and inputs.
I always aim to bring an added value and over the past years I have experienced a vast variety of materials and techniques.
Innovation and different points of view are the guiding principles in every work process of mine.
Do you normally participate in design events? What will be next?
I am happy to participate in design events and exhibitions. At the moment, a participation in Auction House is planned.
What are your next projects?
I am continuing to explore nature, being the biggest hoard of solutions we can imagine. That is where my inspiration comes from and what, I believe, will inspire my next collection. Today’s life permits and encourages infinite creativity and new interpretations, we should be thankful for that.

In this post I collected the best Photoshop Actions from the month of August 2013.
Established in 2003, Design studio Front is created by Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken and Anna Lindgren . They are the members of the Swedish design group Front.
Their works are based on common discussions, explorations and experiments and they are all involved in the projects from initial ideas to the final product.
Front’s design objects often communicate a story to the observer about the design process, about the material it is made of or about conventions within the design field. They have made a constantly changing interior, created objects with explosions, robotic furniture and a range of furniture inspired by their fascination with magic.
Front design studio breaks conventions of the design process. “We always question what we do and why we do it,” says designer Charlotte von der Lancken. “There have to be other values than making cheap chairs.” The designer met collaborators Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren while studying “hardcore” industrial design at Sweden’s Konstfack College, and together they now create dynamic works, like vases wrapped in layers of foil that can be stripped away, a table that collapses over the course of months, or a light bulb that is actually a bubble.
This project called Surface Tension Lamp is based in the creation of a bubble that is brief, and bursts at your touch. But while it lasts, it catches the light and reflects the room like a multi-coloured temporary structure. They wanted to create a constantly changing lamp that combines the most ephemeral of lampshades with an LED light source that will last for 50000 hours. In the time it takes the LED to burn out, the lamp will have had 3 million different globe shades. The Design Museum in London have nominated the Surface Tension Lamp for the Designs of the Year 2013. Surface tension lamp will be included in the Designs of the Year exhibition at the museum from 20 March 2013.
