During Jerusalem Design Week, the Borderline project made its debut, which was created by Marlene Huissoud, a UK-based designer, and Erez Nevi Pana, an Israeli designer, who worked in collaboration with Arta Yarn Manufacturers.

The Borderline project promoted a message of unity, and did so by taking borders and walls and turning them into candles made from yarn that were measured to the length of them. Included in the series was the wall that was promised to the American people by Donald Trump in order to separate the country from Mexico, which would have to be about 2,000 miles long.

After the candles were created for the Borderline project, they were then melted away. The designers explained this message by saying, "Borderline explores the ways in which design can imagine unity within diversity, facing the global upsurge of nationalism, xenophobic attacks and record numbers of refugees."
