Dezeen Showroom: A lit-up wall showcasing contemporary artwork is one of the features included in the Aritco HomeLift by Swedish elevator manufacturer Aritco.

Designed to act as an additional decorative element in the home, the Aritco HomeLift has been developed by Aritco alongside Swedish designer Alexander Lervik to include several standout features.

This includes a DesignWall – a backlit panel of the lift chamber which displays a curated selection of artworks made by creatives from across Scandinavia. The lift is also integrated with DesignLight, a state-of-the-art lighting system that can be adjusted via Aritco's SmartLift app.

"The most obvious change in our new generation of home lifts is the visual aspect," Aritco explained.

"Previously, all the focus was on functionality, technicality, weight and speed. In most cases, the lift was considered 'a necessary evil', a tool to facilitate everyday life that ideally should be hidden away in a building," it continued.

"But now, the focus has shifted: it's about creating an attractive addition to a particular space."

Aritco and Lervik have also made the control system of the lift more distinctive. Instead of traditional push buttons, the Aritco HomeLife is controlled by a large round knob that the two parties liken to a steering wheel.

Lervik said the feature is directly inspired by the knobs seen on hi-fi systems or inside cars.

Aritco's HomeLift can be custom made in 11 different colours in order to complement a variety of interiors. Options include champagne – a cool-tone beige – anthracite grey, jet black and sage green. It is also possible to choose which glass the lift shaft is fitted with, and what type of material is used for its flooring.
