Fonma Oniva is a research and architecture practice based in Tel Aviv, founded in 2020 by Nof Nathansohn and Avinoam Sharon.
As our studio name implies, we aspire to look at the design processes from different perspectives and to challenge the boundaries between practice and research. We use traditional materials with new technologies and fabrication methods - high-tech thinking with low-tech means, in order to provoke social change through design.
Avinoam Sharon is an architect and a practitioner. As a design team leader at EK A (Efrat-Kowalsky Architects), Avinoam has experienced with various architecture scales, from large scale complex buildings like the Israeli Art Museum in Ramat Gan, to handcrafted costume made wood objects design, such as the interior of The French Institute in Tel Aviv. He graduated with honor from Tel Aviv University (B.Arch), and teaches at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design.
Nof Nathansohn is an architect, researcher and journalist. She holds a post-graduate Master's degree (SMArchS) from MIT, where she awarded for best thesis and a B.Arch from Tel Aviv University. As a journalist, Nof was the Editor-in-Cheif of Time Out Tel Aviv, Tel-Aviv’s leading local publication. She worked as a researcher at MIT's Self-Assembly Lab and taught design at MIT's Architecture department. Nof is interested in computational design and fabrication, the use of new materials in architecture, and the intersection between the design process and social action.
