Israeli-born, Paris-based designer Arik Levy has fashioned a collection of furniture, tableware and household accessories for Ligne Roset. Levy’s brand of stylish minimalism – favouring anodised aluminium and brushed or polished steel – is avant garde, but never removed from the imperatives of real life and comfort, according to a Ligne Roset spokesman. The collection comprises the XL1 chaise longue or ‘rest mat’, the Good News magazine rack, the Smoke ashtray, the Itaka reversible fruit bowl (pictured), the Easy waste paper basket and PYX, a ceiling light or floor lamp. Levy has collaborated with Ligne Roset since 1998. His consultancy, LDesign, was founded in 1996 with Pippo Lionni.
