Dror
225 West 39th Street, 6th Floor
Join the New York studio, Dror, for a discussion of the firm’s interdisciplinary approach to innovative design, encompassing product design, architecture projects, interior design, and art direction. Conversation with designer Dror Benshetrit and staff will continue over drinks in the studio.

Dror’s QuaDror
“space truss geometry” is a structural support system made of L-shaped interlocking forms, which while light, mobile, and flexible, remain exceedingly strong. The design innovation has been applied to a
wide-range of uses and applications, including art installations, dividing walls, trestles, highway barriers, and emergency shelters.
Dror Benshetrit received his education at the Eindhoven Design Academy in Holland. Dror’s work has been described by Aric Chen as embodying “the complexity of the manifold meanings and uses that
intersect at a single object. Rooted in a rigorous approach and methodology of movement, every project is driven with the desire to unleash the mutable and non-static nature of objects.” Clients include
Alessi, Bentley, Boffi, Bombay Sapphire, Cappellini, Kiehl’s, Levi’s, Lualdi, Material ConneXion, Maya Romanoff, Marithé + François Girbaud, Puma, Rosenthal, Skins Footwear, Yigal Azrouël, Shvo, Swarovski, and Target. Awards include the GE Plastics Competition “Merging Boundaries” (2001), iF Product Design Award (2006), and the Good Design Award (2008, 2010).
