“Creation is an uncontrolled muscle,” says Arik Levy, artist, photographer, designer, technician, filmmaker and renowned sculptor, whose limited edition artworks and designs can be seen in prestigious galleries and museums worldwide. Originally from Tel Aviv before departing for Europe and launching a celebrated international career in design, Levy is known for his signature blend of technical skill and aesthetic sensibility.
A multi-disciplinarian, Levy studied industrial design at Art Center College of Design in La Tour de Peilz, Switzerland, gaining distinction in industrial design in 1991. Though noted for his sculptures, furniture and light designs, Levy also designs clothing lines and accessories for firms in the Far East. His love of arts also led him to contribute in another field of art: contemporary dance and opera through set design.
The Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (Citem) proudly brings Levy here in Manila for the launching of the first DeXign Global Philippines, a design-centric and design-forward international home and fashion trade event to be launched as a co-located show within Manila FAME on October 17 to 20 at the SMX Convention Center, Pasay City, Philippines.
The first of its kind in the country, DeXign Global will feature home and fashion products from all over the world and will serve as a platform for international manufacturers aiming to tap the growing Asian market for home and home furnishings and the booming Philippine retail and contract markets.
Among Levy’s works to be highlighted in DeXign Global include the following: Pattern Collections from EMU; the Molteni and C Collection including the Tea-Time L-shape sofa with cushion, Tivan armchair and Quake small tables; Outline chairs; and the Antenna and Bodyless Lamps.
Experience the Arik Levy design philosophy, as well as those of other international innovative and high-caliber designers such as Thailand’s Anon Pairot and Japan’s Kyoto 6, in DeXigner’s Gallery, a special setting of DeXign Global Philippines.
