Dror Benshetrit is a designer based in New York City. He was born in Tel Aviv (Israel) and studied at Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands. He designed the "Peacock" folded felt chair for Cappellini and has a line of shelving, bedding, stationary and other products at Target. He is also the designer for the Soho Synagogue. Benshetrit designed a sunken luxury eco-resort in Abu Dhabi that is "camouflaged to look like an undulating green carpet". He also designed a molded structural sole called a "bone" over which sock-like 'skins' are stretched. Many of his works involve movement, and he created a series of "elegant objects that flip, flop or fold into many forms".
Dror owns Studio Dror, in New York City.
