Born in Tel Aviv, Arik Levy is one of the widest ranging industrial designers at work today. Having earned a degree from the Swiss Art Center College of Design, Levy settled in Paris, where he designed stage sets for modern dance performances and theater before co-founding the design studio Ldesign in 1997 with Pippo Lionni. Together, they have developed a broad range of projects extending from furniture, interiors, lighting, to consumer products and graphic design. His inimitable approach to design, imbued with emotion and poetry, can be seen throughout his work whether it be minimalist and functional designs for the masses or eccentric installations for the art world. We met Arik at his Osmosis exhibition in Milan where he explained why his design world is not so much about tables and chairs but about people.
