Item Details
Israeli sculptor Arik Levy’s Meteor makes a bold statement in the waiting area of Lanvin Men’s Madison Avenue shop in Manhattan. These sculptural objects, manufactured and distributed by the Italian company Serralunga, are directly inspired by Levy’s iconic Rock sculpture series. Meteor can be used for both indoor and outdoor spaces: it can be a single object or a bench alongside more traditional pieces of contemporary furniture, in the set-up of shops and public spaces and it can also work as an informal garden bench, in various versions and sizes, for setting up outdoor spaces, gardens and for decorating terraces.

Creation is an uncontrolled muscle” according to Arik Levy (born 1963).

Artist, technician, photographer, designer, video artist, Levy’s skills are multi-disciplinary and his work can be seen in prestigious galleries and museums worldwide. Best known publicly for his sculptures - such as his signature Rock pieces -, his installations, limited editions, and design, Levy nevertheless feels “The world is about people, not objects.”

Hailing originally from Israel and moving to Europe after his first participation in a group sculpture exhibition in Tel-Aviv in 1988, Levy currently works in his studio in Paris.

His formation was unconventional where surfing, as well as his art and graphic design studio, took up much of his time back home. Following studies at the Art Center Europe in Switzerland, he gained a distinction in Industrial Design in 1991.

After a stint in Japan where he consolidated his ideas producing products and pieces for exhibitions, Levy returned to Europe where he contributed his artistry to another field - contemporary dance and opera by way of set design.

The creation of his firm then meant a foray back to his first love, art, and industrial design, as well as other branches of his talents. Respected for his furniture and light designs on all continents, Levy also creates hi-tech clothing lines and accessories for firms in the Far East.

Considering himself now more of a “feeling” artist, Arik Levy continues to contribute substantially to our interior and exterior milieu, his work including public sculpture, as well as complete environments that can be adapted for multi-use. “Life is a system of signs and symbols,” he says, “where nothing is quite as it seems.”
