Studioimooi brings Arik Levy’s unique Split collection to Hong Kong

Studioimooi brings Arik Levy's unique Split collection to Hong Kong, created by hand using 150-year-old wood-bending techniques

The Split collection designed by Arik Levy — who is the cover feature for the current (May 2015) issue of Perspective magazine — encompasses chairs, armchairs and barstools in both wood and upholstered versions.

Produced in collaboration with Ton, manual wood-bending technology is taken to new areas of experimentation. Making its debut at Salon del Mobile 2015 in Milan earlier this year, the Split collection was inspired by the concept of connecting the past with the future. The collection is unique in that the wood is split into two parts — each bent in a different direction, a design approach which only skilled craftsmen with a solid understanding of the workings and limitations of wood are able to realise.

A classic interpretation of form meeting function, the Split collection is entirely handmade using processes which are over 150 years old.
