Design, Awards and Design Awards with Alexander Lervik

We catch up with designer of the Aritco HomeLift, Alexander Lervik, and discuss awards in the design business.

An Illustrious Career

Over 23 years of working with design, a soon decade-long collaboration with Aritco, and a plethora of design awards from all corners of the world for the Aritco HomeLift sharing a crowded trophy case. These are a few of the many accolades that designer Alexander Lervik has amassed over the years.

Holding his most precious one – a sleeping toddler – in his lap, Alexander shares some thoughts on those other prizes.

Tell us what you work with as a designer and which your favorite areas are.

“Furniture, lighting, textile, glass, industry designs such as lifts and bicycles,” Alexander lists and continues, “I work with a wide variety of objects, often with innovation as a base. I like creating new solutions.”

“As for favorites, furniture and lighting are the fields I appreciate the most. Though working with glass is a lot of fun too as the process is so beautiful.”

Working with Aritco since 2012, what have you appreciated most about the collaboration?

“I have found that there is a tremendous understanding of and appreciation for design at Aritco, as well as a high level of cooperation. The marketing team, technicians, engineers, myself, and others have all found each other well in our work, and it has never felt like a one man show, much more a team effort.”

What do design awards mean to you? Are they something one strives for or a bonus?

“Awards are a kind of quality stamp, a recognition of your work that says what you are doing is good. Regarding the second part of that question, I would say both, really. You can steer your work in a particular direction to win awards. With furniture, for example, a certain type of design is more likely to win awards.”

“In a way, I have tried to remain free from this as it is more fun to do something that stands out and still gets attention for its originality. With the Aritco HomeLift, however, the focus was to build a product that lasts over time which matches well with the award criteria.”

Do the awards that you have won with Aritco stand out from other accolades?

“What has been fun about the awards we have won with the HomeLift is that so many of them have been from Asia and other international award shows. I had won some international awards in the past, but with Aritco the recognition has nearly exclusively been international.”

“One that I am extra fond of is the Gold we won in the Hong Kong Design Awards in 2017. I love Hong Kong as a city, so that one really made me warm inside!”

Thank you, Alexander, we look forward to a future of many more fruitful collaborations
