About Ram Bar-Zeev


Ram Bar-Zeev, a Tel Aviv based designer, was born in 1964 in Brussels, Belgium, and grew up in Israel. He traveled to Italy in 1989 to study industrial design at the renowned IED Academy of Design in Milano. During his studies and following his graduation, Ram collaborated with well-known Milanese studios, designing home and office furniture, kitchens, sanitary ware and plastic products for leading Italian and international manufacturers.

Extra Vergine, established in 2008, realizes Ram’s vision to create his own brand, fusing two things he’s passionate about – the Mediterranean way of life and modern design - into a new visual language. Extra Vergine’s collections of furniture, lamps and accessories explore the invigorating encounter between those two worlds and offer a fresh interpretation of our everyday interior.
