Designer, artist, technician, photographer and filmmaker – there seems to be no end to the talents of the ubiquitous Arik Levy and this time, the French-Israeli creative has collaborated with a Dutch design label Palau to create a modular, adjustable sofa system called ‘Stream’. Due to be showcased in March 2012 at Palau’s new showroom Design Post Amsterdam and Utrecht’s centre for interior design Toonkamer, the sofa is be available as either one-, two- and three-seater, with one of its elements functioning as a table with a conveniently-positioned, in-built storage unit.
More about the sofa:
‘Stream is sophisticated and stylish, designed to meet with individual taste and personal comfort. It’s a modular system, enabling the user to configure different combinations. The flexible system consists of practical adjustments such as various backrest heights, adjustable armrests, one-, two- and three-seat elements and a beautiful selection of colours and materials for the cushions and base. The proportions, size and composition animate the space elegantly. Colourful seamings accentuate the exciting lining of the design.
‘Stream is an experience. In Levy ‘s own words: “Working on the Stream sofa was a wonderful experience combining passion, relationship and great manufacturing. Stream is not just another sofa for me. It is a platform to meet and connect. Like a river that streams, the sofa will swing around the space creating a kind of micro architecture within the room.”’
