In 2009, Ilan decided to become a professional origami artist. His main field was tessellations, perfectly suitable for the design of lamps, which resulted in Aqua Creations. After creating a collection of 200 paper models it was time for a new challenge, folding new materials, especially those that, by nature, defy folding. His research helped him to fold fabric, glass, iron and steel plates, silver, wood and ceramic. Using this new knowledge he started to design products such as vases, jewellery and tables as well as works of art. These works are presented in Talents Design Gallery in Tel-Aviv. Ilan likes science-fiction and collects riddles. He unwinds to the tunes of classical Indian music, enjoys teaching, is an autodidact, can juggle up to 4 balls and is mad about paper.
