confession by arik levy

israeli born, paris based designer arik levy has created ‘confession’ a limited edition of seating furniture for the home. this object in two parts, is a kind of modern home confessional. by borrowing one of the catholic church’s communications tools, he reworks the proportions to create an object with a seating area larger than the traditional version.

‘confession’ will be on display as part of the ‘preliminaires’ exhibition presented by gallery slot, paris during milan design week 2010 at the straf hotel.

  • I don’t really like it. I feel as though they just kind of started with a name an went from there.

    John says:
  • Big Disappointment from such an amazing designer

    scott says:
  • Design as such non-existent. However, were it to fulfill the role between folks that the “Confessional” supposedly does for RC folk, then it could be a useful tool d;-)

    Jetwax says:
  • Inane. But a smaller version would be a great hit with cats!
