Milan Design week 2017 | Nichetto & Gorham create stunning light installations made in glass for Salviati
Salviati – which, founded in 1859, is one of the oldest and most prestigious Venice glass manufacturers – presents at Ventura Centrale the installation Decode/Recode, created by Luca Nichetto and Ben Gorham.
The first of two spaces occupied by Salviati in the Central Rail Station of Milan, during the Milan Design Week 2017, accommodates the installation Strata which features three large luminous objects, divided by screens made in semi-transparent black fabric and composed of 6.000 small sheets made in colored glass. The three lighting “presences” emerge from the dark in a dim-lighted room to celebrate the beauty of matter.
In the second room, the installation Pyrae comprises 53 totems arranged in four straight, parallel lines. The installation is also a research on the ideas of sequence and combination; the 253 forms which compose the totems are characterized by 15 colors and 10 different manufacturing techniques, and can be combined to form more than 10,000 different objects.
