Confessions

March 27, 2010

Designer Arik Levy has created ‘confession’ a limited edition of
seating furniture for the home. The elevated box chairs do remind of the famous Bubble Chair with less comfort, though.

However, this object in two parts, is a kind of modern home confessional for modern couples,aiding in communication.

He reworks the proportions to create an object with a seating area larger than the traditional version.

    Confessions Installations

    With his installations, Arik confesses, bares his soul and invites us to do the same. His starting point is the observation that most Parisian couples end up divorcing and that building a life as a couple is an extremely fragile enterprise. Failure to communicate well is often at the root of this problem. Taboos and unspoken truths eat away at a couple’s harmonious existence. Confessions allow this trust to be rebuilt. Driven by an “uncontrollable muscle”, Arik Levy surfs a tsunami of ideas, that swallows up every preconceived notion in its path. He offers us a new perspective on our environment and the issues of intimacy; through this quest, devoid of safeguards, he raises the essential problem of our truth.
