Introducing the Sticks Collection: A lighting Toolkit for Boundless Spaces

5th November, 2020

Designed by Arik Levy, the Sticks collection is based on a cutting-edge concept of fusing technology, space, and architecture through light.

Minimalist aluminum rods connect wall to wall, floor to wall, wall to ceiling or from a ceiling into space. “It’s the only light system that embraces all the architectural parameters,” explains Levy.

Levy’s idea was to produce and disrupt planes with these glowing forms, facilitating infinite possibilities and boundless spaces. The poles measure from 1.5 to 3 meters each and can be combined in any direction for a maximum length of 6.5 meters.

The rods themselves are rotatable, orienting illumination at will and acting as a customisable toolkit to integrate light elements in an interior. Levy likens it to an adjustable laser beam “that adapts to the user rather than the user adapting to the system.”

Whether for commercial or residential interiors, the fixtures create and define a space with personalised designs. Read on for inspired examples of Sticks in a range of rooms.

In a loft-like lobby, a pair of Sticks lamps are suspended in asymmetric arrangements like a crown overhead. Their lean lines trace an elegant geometry that joins the double-height ceiling with the walls and the space below.

Along a hallway, Sticks zigzags from side to side, brightening the long corridor on either side and lending visual interest to the unadorned walls.

A restaurant also deploys Sticks in a daring design. A single, vertical rod is affixed to the wall and connects to another that juts out horizontally in space. The crisp right angle delineates and illuminates each table while serving as a daring accent in the restrained room.

A bedroom features a two-piece fixture performing double duty as a bedside reading lamp and ambient overhead lighting. Its long top arm stretches across the room like an abstract art installation that complements the painting next to it.

Sticks is about lighting space, which changes the perception of light and the way a fixture behaves in space,” Levy says. “It’s more like a sculpture instead of a wired element.”
