"A relationship, I think, is like a shark. You know? It has to constantly move forward or it dies. And I think what we got on our hands is a dead shark"
Woody Allen, Annie Hall (1977)

Relationship {1} Harmony in the studio
Giga is playing with Tia which is caring for Cookie (their dogs) which is watching the Kozo (David) who is preparing tea for Anati (his wife) and me (their brand new friend:-), and on Thursdays nights he (the Kozo) converses with his best friends over a jam session.

Relationship {2} Flirting with the pipes
David has began his water pipes romance after he had finished studying at Shenkar college. He found couple of those sexy pipes in the street's waste, and tried a few things with them (a table for example). Once he made the connection with light, he was on fire!
Now days invitations are coming from all over the world (even from an Arab royal family).
To keep up the increasing demand, and to keep his sustainable agenda as well, he sometimes buys useless stocks from manufacture factories. Yet, for keeping the personal touch of each lamp, he has to make it on his own. Sometimes he still secretly puts together small old parts founded in the streets.

Relationship {3} With the "upcycle" idea
For David upcycling is a concept beyond the design field limits. For example it can be a cover for an old song, or a pie from leftovers in the fridge. They call it: Thursday's pie, (as Thursday is the last working day of the week for us).
Relationship {4} Light fixtures of the "Kozo":

Upcycle relationship with > "Mona" - Cooperation with the phenomenal illustrator Ola Liola Kushnir
"Yo Mona Lisa, could I get a date on Friday and if your busy, I wouldn't mind taking Saturday"...

Upcycle relationship with > "Kozo"
"Nobody fucks with the Jesus.”
(The Big Lebowski)

Upcycle relationship with > "Giga"
"Shall we shag now, or shall we shag later?"
(Austin Powers)

Upcycle relationship with > "KirZaz"
“Demented and sad, but social.”
(The Breakfast Club)

Upcycle relationship with > "Mimi" (Mi = Who?, in Hebrew) - This film and all the others of the "Kozo" made by Anati

מתבייש קצת, מתרגש" 
רק אותה אני אוהב 
את מי? את מי? 
"את מימי 
(אילנה לופט ושלמה ידוב)

"I am a little ashamed, I am excited
I love her only
Who? Who? Mimi"

Relationship {5} Friends


  1. What about conductivity? If one of the cables becomes loose inside wouldn't the entire body of the lamp become dangerous? I'd love to get my hands on one, but that issue kinda worries me.

    1. hi' Tom, I can't really answer your question but you are most welcome to write directly to David - The lamps hang here in Israel in lots of restaurants ....but yet... Good luck:-)
