The Kalab Exhibition by Tarazi Studio is a militaristic collection of furniture that skillfully explores the connection between armed conflict and civilian life.

Inspired by the Isreali-Palestinian conflict, the Kalab Exhibition by Tarazi Studio uses military souvenirs and surplus gear to evoke the look and feel of a ‘battlefield.’ Needless to say, with its sandbag sofa and bullet-casing ashtrays, this is one collection of furniture that does not fool around.

Implications - People are getting their news from a variety of instantaneous sources -- on their phones, tablets and laptops. This means that even if they are not directly implicated, war is part of the human imaginary, which translates into military inspirations in design products, but inspirations that take conflict seriously and have a political slant.
