Next level living
Technology has transformed the way we live our lives. As with many significant eras in history, Design and Architecture have had to respond to that change. What about the future, how will Design, Architecture and Technology work together to further enhance our lives?
At Aritco Lift we have set out on a journey around the world taking us to four major design events in 2020: Stockholm Design Week, Design Shanghai, London Design Festival and Downtown Design in Dubai. Along this road, we meet up with influential designers and architects across the industry and ask for their take on the future.
The world around us is changing. Are you? #nextlevelliving

Aritco Sponsors Innovative Design
Alexander Lervik has been one of Sweden’s leading product designers for over 20 years, and throughout his career he has created his own, distinctive lights and furniture as well as working on commercial projects for clients ranging from Aritco’s HomeLift to 3-D printed jewellery for Swedish fashion brand Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair. The mix of personal, creative projects and commercial, collaborative commissions works well as it perpetually stimulates new ideas and supports his evolution as a designer.
When he developed the concept behind the Imaginations x 12 exhibition – a series of a dozen pieces of furniture inspired by artistic movements – Lervik presented it to the team at Aritco. They recognized that some of these unique pieces clearly reflect Aritco’s core brand values and they also realised that one piece could even be incorporated into its lifts, so they agreed to sponsor the exhibition.
Aritco PublicLift Access launches at Stockholm Design Week
After the success of the award-winning Aritco HomeLift, Swedish designer Alexander Lervik has turned his attention to the Aritco PublicLift Access which has been designed for public and commercial buildings, including apartment blocks, schools, shopping centres and offices.
The elegant Scandinavian design, which includes a backlit panel, lit handlebars and soft-touch buttons, is combined with a unique feature that is a first for the industry – an LED screen for video art.
“A lift is stationary most of the time, so it should really be given an additional task,” explains Lervik. “I thought it would be interesting to give the lift a certain ‘evolving value’: that it would subtly change its appearance from time to time.”
