The Visual Directors
The Norman Tel Aviv was renovated by architect Yoav Messer, who succeeded in preserving the original buildings in harmony with the neighbourhood’s distinct tradition of eclectic, modern, and Bauhaus buildings. The interior design, steered by David d’Almada of SAGRADA, captures the dignified elegance of the 1920’s, skillfully blended with the unique Mediterranean ambiance of early Tel Aviv. The Norman Art Collection of original Israeli contemporary art was curated by Tamar Dresdner until 2018 and from 2019 until today, additions to the collection have been curated by Robin Greene.
The Art Collection
The art collection at The Norman Tel Aviv features works by leading contemporary Israeli artists with international reputations. The pieces themselves, in a host of media; painting, sculpture, print, photography and textile – not only stand alone as pieces of significant note but also reflect and embody the many archaeological layers of the buildings as the central theme to the collection.
One of the many accomplishments of the collection is how each piece sits in a seamless, harmonious dialogue with the different materials and elements of the interior and furniture design.
