About cecillia vitas

I was born in the US, raised in Argentina and Israel and gained my professional education in California.

With a strong multidisciplinary background in environmental and industrial design, my practice tends to blur the edges from seriousness to playfulness, craft to advanced technology and from unique objects to mini architecture.
My work is rooted in rigorous research and study, with inspirational solutions found in the natural surroundings as well as the human behavior observation, while always examining the spatial relationships between man, object and the environment.

Today, my studio is located in Northern Israel, and i am engaging in a diverse range of activities: designing outdoor elements, exhibitions, furniture and interior design, to creating site-specific installations and issuing furniture patent registration.
