Born in Tel Aviv, Israel, and now working in Paris, Arik Levy is an industrial designer who finds inspiration in the elements and natural forms.

Levy has also created stage designs for contemporary dance and opera that illustrate his passion for space, exchange and the relationship to the body. His company L Design was founded with partner, graphic designer Pippo Lionni, and encompasses product development, packaging, signage, visual identity, lighting, store and interior design. Their strikingly creative projects in lighting and furniture are produced for Ligne Roset, L`Oreal, Boucheron, Renault, and Vitra.

Levy`s work for SMMoA`s Project Room consists of two flower-like chandeliers, one red, one blue, made of very thin fluorescent tubes and hanging from a long wire. These fragile, tiny, bulbs hang over a stainless steel table in the form of a log, reflecting off its facets the colored light of the chandeliers above.

After attending Art Center Europe in Switzerland where he studied the history of design, Levy received a diploma in industrial design in 1991. He is also the winner of the Seiko Epson Inc. contest. Levy participated in the 2005 group exhibition at MoMA, Safe: Design Takes on Risk with his bulletproof jacket made from swan feathers, garnering accolades from within the international design community.  As a designer, technician, artist, photographer, and filmmaker, Levy`s multi-disciplinary skills have been shown in prestigious galleries and museums worldwide, including Wright20 Gallery, Chicago; Moss Gallery, New York; Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; the Israel Museum in Jerusalem; and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
