Located in the city of Holon (south of Tel Aviv) the Design Museum Holon is the first national museum dedicated to design. The building has to be the new educational and cultural hub for Israel and houses a collection of contemporary and historical pieces from diverse designs disciplines, including industrial, fashion, textiles and jewellery. The museum accommodates two primary galleries and a number of diverse alternative exhibition and education spaces in-between. The Gallery 1 (500m²) celebrates the abundance of natural light in Israel and the qualities it can bring to the display of three-dimensional objects, while allowing curatorial flexibility by modulating light levels. The second, smaller gallery, (200m²) is taller inside but offers a more intimate, personal relationship between the visitor and the object on display. The eye-catcher, the greater part of the building's exterior is shrouded by a sinuous ribbon façade composed of five bands of Corten weathering steel.
