Ron Arad shocks design world by quitting RCA

Tuesday 3 March 2009

Revered designer Ron Arad is to step down as head of the department of design products at the Royal College of Art (RCA), it has been reported.

According to Design Week, the creator of countless iconic designs will seek out a new challenge after some 12 years at the venerable institution.

He suggested that the allure of teaching would not be bringing him back to the academic fold immediately, but did not rule out the possibility of a future return.

Speaking to Design Week, the RCA\'s Christopher Frayling explained that the institution was saddened Arad would be leaving in the summer.

\'He feels it is time for a change; and his own practice as a designer has become very successful,\' Mr Frayling said.

This year alone, Arad is exhibiting work at the Pompidou in Paris and then New York\'s Museum of Modern Art.

The retrospective - entitled No Discipline - will look at works which the talented British designer has created for furniture companies including Vitra, Moroso and Kartell.
