BeKom Design was founded in 2009 by designers Revital Kaufman-Meron and Susan Bowen.
“The idea of working together as a team came up after long conversations about design and large amounts of coffee. In our conversations we found out that despite the fact of coming from different backgrounds, we share the love for design and the courage and energy to work as independent designers.”
By sharing strong work ethics and deep commitment to the clients’ vision, BeKom Design is meant to help clients envision, design and ultimately build the house or working space of their dreams.
