Beneath the Forest barstoolÂ’s seemingly random “branches” lies extensive ergonomic research, making designer Arik Levy’s beauty a functional work of art. Levy took the average heights of an adult male, female and an adolescent child to calculate the perfect location for the multiple “branch” footrests on its base. Designed for the entire family, the Forest with either a wood or flat upholstered seat, is an excellent perch for eating dinner, enjoying a glass of wine, or working on tonight’s homework. From his Paris-based company L design and together with his partner Pippo Lionni and their team of designers, Levy develops projects in industrial, interior and graphic design for the European and international markets. His technical skills and creativity are reflected in a variety of subjects and disciplines. LevyÂ’s work has been exhibited worldwide in museums, alternative spaces, galleries and fairs and is held in permanent collections of prestigious international museums and institutions. The Forest stool collection is offered with either a swivel wood seat, upholstered low profile seat (non-swivel) or upholstered swivel seat. The collection is level 1 & greenguard certified.
