Fusing technology, space and architecture, the Sticks Collection by Arik Levy offers a toolkit for integrating light elements into an interior.
Pure and graphic, the namesake sticks rotate on their own axis, offering freedom to direct light exactly where needed. The toolkit consists of three minimalist aluminum rods—measuring 1.5 meters, 2 meters, and 3 meters—which can be combined in any direction for a maximum length of 6.5 meters.
The collection is offered in several predesigned layouts as well as personalised arrangements designed from scratch. Custom configurations include connecting rods from wall to wall, floor to wall, wall to ceiling, or from the ceiling into space.
Endlessly versatile, Sticks can be deployed in halls and walkways to creative effect, illuminating and defining these circulation areas.
Along a hallway bound by a rectangular wood partition on either side, an overhead installation of Sticks plays geometric and material counterpoint. The sleek zig zag pattern features a kinetic form that recalls a lightning bolt illuminating the narrow space. A long vertical rod positioned next to the doorway acts like a beacon and creates a kind of punctuation mark delineating the end of the passageway. Suspended below the ceiling, Sticks brings the light closer and making the high-ceilinged space feel more intimate.
In an elevator vestibule, a quartet of Sticks crisscrosses overhead. The minimalist poles overlap and intersect, creating a connection between the different elevator banks. The lean lines form a clear focal point that draws attention to the spot and adds an elegant architectural accent to a typically prosaic area.
A long, interior walkway showcases Sticks’ myriad possibilities in one striking installation. One pole climbs the wall and tilts into space to meet another that crosses overhead and continues in a horizontal line down the wall. A second arrangement creates a slanted right angle, lending visual tension to the spare backdrop. The look is restrained and futuristic, its composition emphasizing the length of the walkway while its angles break up the tunnel-like path.
