Wartime Decor, Modern and Upscale

The KALAB Exhibition features military surplus and “souvenirs” turned into enigmatic furniture and home decor. Born out of the Israeli conflict, there’s a strong mixture between military and civilian life – defining the culture. Vases made out of bomb shells, ashtrays made from extinct bullets and a sofa stacked like a dugout. It raises questions of security and confronts the idea of civilians playing the part of the soldier.
