Gal Bulka

Product & Object Design

“Design to me is context. It is the understanding that a product lives in a particular context, whether commercial or conceptual, whether subject to trends or a longer time frame, to usability, an idea, to the screen, and so on. Thus, the designer, as the one who pulls the strings, must realize whether he is acting within this contextual environment or is challenging it.”
Independent designer Gal Bulka is a graduate of the Bezalel Department of Industrial Design and the Product Design department at ECAL, Switzerland. Currently living and working in Yaffo, he is a firm believer in design’s power to advance and improve the world, both conceptually and practically.
His works include lighting fixtures, furniture items, and various consumer products with game characteristics—expressing the search for form and archetypal research and a reconsideration of conventions, which is often manifested in the connection between them. Bulka has designed for businesses such as El Al, Laline, OTOTO, Fred&Friends as well as for galleries, museums and various design events.
Bulka was nominated for the 2021 Edmond de Rothschild Design Award for Emerging Product Designers.
