BoND was founded by Noam Dvir and Daniel Rauchwerger - partners in work and life - in 2014. Coming from a background of journalism and writing, the duo’s work is focused on architecture, media, and cultural analysis. Projects in the studio often begin in the virtual realm - ideas, visions, and writing - and transform into design strategy and execution.
Notable projects include exhibition and environmental design for Harvard University, Library and Archives Canada, bespoke residential projects in New York and Tel Aviv, and office interiors.
Noam Dvir, 36, is an architect, urban designer and architectural writer. As Director of Architecture at Dror Studio - an award-winning architecture and design firm based out of Chelsea, New York - Noam leads a team of designers and architects working on projects from furniture design to masterplans.
