As such it has designed, among others, the exhibition "Metabolism" (Dec. 2014, Hansen House, Jerusalem), "Masters 2016" (Mar. 2016, Hansen House, Jerusalem), "Yaski & Co." ( April 2016, Tel Aviv Museum), and is currently involved with the design and curation of the main exhibition of the "Jerusalem Design week 2016", which will open May 2016 at Sherover Villa and the Hansen house, Jerusalem.
