JOSH HADAR PRESENTS “THE EVOLUTION OF STEEL”

May 2011

DESIGNER JOSH HADAR PRESENTS “THE EVOLUTION OF STEEL”

NEW YORK

From May 6th-May 27th, Josh Hadar, Founder and Owner of Hadar Metal Design, an Eco-friendly design group that creates one-of-a-kind custom bikes and environmental installations, will launch his first showcase at 285 Lafayette St. in New York City. Hadar has worked to develop new sculptural art installations that bring evolving environmental technologies to the forefront of the art world and will display a series of bikes and trees, all hand crafted from steel in his neighborhood workshop.

The exhibit will display everything from Josh’s crude early work to his more recent custom bikes such as “ER’s Teardrop,” which features nickel on rolled steel, hand-spun aluminum plate wheels, and a hand-blown, steel-wrapped glass fuel tank with an 80 cc gas powered motor with pedal assist. Also featured is “Christy Lynn,” built to honor the strength and spirit of his dear friend Christie Lynn Medrano who died of complications from the treatment of breast cancer in November of 2008. In addition to the bikes, Josh will showcase his newest creations, solar powered steel trees that represent the future of eco-conscious design, already displayed across the globe including an installation at the Intercontinental Hotel in Times Square.
