Gracing the walls of the Design Museum in Holon, Israel, the crushed Fiat 500 cars that make up the art installation of Israeli artist Ron Arad decorate the room as elegantly as delicately pressed flowers.

In all different hues, from bright reds and yellows to murky browns and blacks, the demolished automobiles add a sense of excitement and liveliness to the room, even though they are essentially decrepit and irreparably damaged. These vintage cars now have a new purpose, being used as wall decor that would look absolutely amazing in the home of a car-collector or automobile enthusiast.

Ron Arad makes even the most pedestrian of people interested in cars with his captivating display of flattened Fiat 500 cars with their eerie beauty and gruesome features.
