Description

 

Arik Levy is one of the most progressive designers at work today. Honoured by his peers in disciplines ranging from furniture and interior design to lighting, hi-tech clothing and product design, Levy has also extended his practice as an artist, photographer and filmmaker.

Following previous exhibitions of his design work at the Centre Georges Pompidou, the Jerusalem Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, in April 2009 Levy installed an 80m-long exhibition of sublimely beautiful works – collectively entitled Osmosis – for Swarovski Crystal Palace at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan.

This book documents that installation, which Levy based on the ‘chaton’ form, that most emblematic of crystal cuts, abstractly transformed here in media ranging from wire-frame superstructures and 450kg marble Floor Jewels, to interactive audio-visual arenas and, of course, archetypal Swarovski crystal.

With a conversation between author Leonard Koren and Arik Levy, texts by writer and designer Suzanne Trocme, curator Zoe Ryan and composer Leon Milo, and more that 200 illustrations in colour.
