Dick, Pussy & Ass by Arik Levy

French designer Arik Levy is exhibiting a collection of three cabinets called Dick, Pussy & Ass at Galerie SLOTT in Paris.

The collection of furniture is made up of geometric boxes, which can be rearranged to create stylised images of sexual organs.

Each piece is made of black waxed MDF with different coloured accents for each cabinet.

The exhibition is called Preliminaries and continues until 12 February.

Here's some more information from Levy:

--

It’s not often that we see these icons in our environment and if it were to happen, it would be considered as inappropriate. But these are beautiful shapes, able to recount many stories. For example, “Pussy” can open more or less wide and “Dick”’s upper portion can come down. “Ass” can commune with “Pussy", while “Dick" is on the floor. All of this must be seen as a game able to intermingle with our reality, exposing its folly.

The difference between seeing an accident and seeing a sign warning about an accident is that in the first case we experience the violence directly while in the second we understand that we need to pay attention, without suffering the emotional shock.

The same is true of “Dick, Pussy & Ass”: the use of pictograms avoids vulgarity and obscenity.
