Fuorisalone 2023 offered an exceptional opportunity to
discover and explore lesser-known or usually inaccessible places in Milan
through a diverse range of events, installations, and shows. One
of the notable exhibitions during the Milano Design Week was "The Art of
Light" by ELLE DECOR Italia, which centered around the relationship
between light and space. Our luminaires were chosen by Metis Lighting to
translate their ideas of light and colour into some of the rooms and in the
garden of the virtually perfect home created by architect Giuliano Dell'Uva.
Visiting the different rooms and spaces of this home was an inspiring journey
through design, art, and light.

The Color Experience room, with its monochrome colour-changing
scheme, was a significant attraction for the numerous visitors, a "coup de
théâtre" designed to captivate onlookers with the immersive power of
colour. Alternating between red, blue, and green, the room showcased how these
intense, vibrant hues can entirely transform the character of a space,
thrilling viewers with a whirl of vibes and sensations. The PARADE L MC 1, 3 and
4 in RGBW configuration installed around the upper perimeter of the room
delivered a uniform and seamless colour transition, creating a vivid contrast
between the reality of white light and the magic of colour.
One of the corridors, visible from the glass window of
the living room, hosted Liam Gillik's site-specific artwork "Plinth for a
work by Giovanni Anselmo," property of Gallery Alfonso Artiaco. Lit up in
red by some of our Capital 100 MC RGBW fixtures, the plinth is a conceptual artwork
brought to life by the presence of curious onlookers. Visitors were invited to
walk around this enigmatic artwork, experiencing a full immersion in a deep red
light. The installation aimed to encourage reflection on the role of light,
space, and colour.
The restaurant layout, temporarily set up inside the
palace, was based on the creative concept of transforming an indoor area into an
exterior space by imitating the mood of a garden through the use of refined materials, such as ceramics or majolicas, as well as plants and stylish furnishings
typically found in outdoor areas. Units of Half Moon Spike, placed in large
pots of lush plants, illuminated their foliage with soft white light effects,
delivering the desired relaxed outdoor atmosphere to the restaurant.
In the courtyard of Palazzo Bovara, landscape
architect Antonio Perazzi explored the theme of perception of light changing
through the presence of vegetation. The green layout aimed to evoke the mood of
historical gardens typical of Mediterranean culture and tradition through a
rich curtain of plants and shrubs that embraced the visitor. Units of Half Moon
Spike hidden among the foliage created a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere, illuminating
the various groups of plants that decorated the courtyard's entire perimeter.
The building's walls served as a lively background that invited visitors to
conviviality. Jupiter RGBW fixtures enhanced the architectural features of these
walls at night in soft warm shades, while a series of Parade L1 in tunable
white emphasized the vegetation surrounding the open bar area for a general charming
Following the successful conclusion of Milano Design
Week 2023, we are proud to share amazing pictures of our product installations
