The work of Galia Tammuz, an industrial designer born in Tel Aviv, Israel, and based in London, England, is highly coveted for good reason. Clean and contemporary, her kitchenware has an artistic bent that would qualify them for the MoMA gift shop. In fact, if Galia Tammuz's creations aren't there yet, a petition has to be drawn up as soon as possible.
From the Baladi Plates, which got a lot of attention late last year, to the adorably named Wobble, spherical storage boxes (or better yet, bowls), Galia Tammuz tweaks common objects in order to shed new light on them. She writes on her website, "My main interests lie in the cultural context of design, its connection with the past, present and future of the culture it has come from."
