Confession by Arik Levy

'Confessions' is a limited edition of seating furniture created by Arik Levy - a designer, artist, technician, photographer and filmmaker. Confessions Installations was presented at Gallerie Slott in Paris, as a part of 'Preliminaires' exhibition.

At first sight we recognize the inspiration - a church confessional, overscaled to the form of unconventional "armchair". The message behind 'Confessions'  is the vital importance of communication: the designer points out that the failure in this area leads to serious relationship problems and it's a cause of numerous divorces. By 'Confessions' we are invited to open up, speak openly even about our "taboos" and "bare our souls".
