Featuring works by artists such as Ron Arad and Mathieu Lehanneur, the interactive exhibition invites visitors to hear, see and touch sound to give an insight into how sound shapes the physical environment.

‘These days, we can listen to music everywhere. We are still able to hear, but we have been desensitised to sound and are losing the ability to listen properly,’ Maya Dvash, chief curator at Design Museum Holon, told Wallpaper. ‘Our exhibition gives a place to a very special way of listening – listening with attention.’

Divided into subsections, Sound and Matter in Design features a Seeing Sound installation, which houses stationary, mobile and interactive sound objects dating back to the 1960s, an interactive work by eight sound artists called Sensing Sound, and a solo show by designer Yael Taragan, who creates jewellery from audio equipment parts.
