Dan Yeffet works in a variety of fields, including architecture, product design, textiles, and sculpture. His work is a hybrid of Israeli pragmatism and northern European aesthetics, distinguished by a conceptual, essential, and original style that combines craft and contemporary technology. He creates furniture, lamps, glass sculptures, everyday things, installations, street furniture, and one-of-a-kind products.
Dan Yeffet was born in Jerusalem in 1971 and attended the Bezalel Academy School of Art and Design from 1999 to 2001. He subsequently relocated to the Netherlands, where he graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam in 2002 with a degree in Industrial Product. He launched an office in Amsterdam after graduation before migrating to Paris in 2005, where he now lives and works in the Viaduc des Arts artistic zone.
