Erez Nevi Pana is an explorer who uses design as a tool to investigate natural phenomena through material experimentation. Born in Bnei Brak, Israel in 1983 and raised on the grounds of a plant nursery, Nevi Pana’s practice has been informed by the fertile soil and evolutionary processes around him and is based on veganism and conscientious, sustainable design.

 

Nevi Pana earned his Bachelor of Arts in design from the Holon Institute of Technology in 2011 and Master of Arts from the Design Academy of Eindhoven in 2014, where his thesis focused on the recrystallization of salt. This developed into a long-term research project; he has been working with salt in the Dead Sea for the past eight years—investigating the over-industrialisation of the region and envisioning solutions to this environmental challenge. 

 

Erez Nevi Pana’s work has been acquired in the permanent collections such as The Design Museum Holon in Israel. In 2020, Nevi Pana created Crystalline for the National Gallery of Victoria’s Triennial, the world’s first commissioned work of salt-based architecture.

 

Nevi Pana currently practices research and design around the world as a doctoral student at University of Arts and Industrial Design, Linz, to investigate the topic of vegan design.
