A story of three generations:
The whole story starts with Marcel, the grandfather who established a company named “Polycryl” in 1961, producing handmade plexiglass and simple daily objects. His son, Shimon, who developed the commercial relations with Europe and created a group of talented artisans, working in a well equipped atelier. Finally, we arrive to Hagit, the grandaughter. Born in 1978, when she was a child, she used to help the old Marcel fiddling around, grew up to become a designer and decided to push all these different experiences and knowledge into a complete design-based entrepreneurial adventure.
Born in Tel Aviv in 1978, living and working in Milan and Rome, Italy.
Pincovici graduated from the department of Industrial design at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem in 2005, and won a scholarship for upstanding achievements for her designs from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation.
