Albe. Luci di domani

The night sky with its infinity of stars and the daytime sky with its sun provide the palette with which the design is experimenting. The research and works that have gone into this exhibition, a balance of technology and poetry, clearly evidence how the re-interpreted luminous objects light a pathway leading to the future. “Artificial stars” are all the luminous devices that the “astronomer-designers” are examining, coming up with objects that show luminous happenings, orbiting spheres, reflective surfaces, blinding eclipses, coloured  dawns, celestial hues. The exhibition is configured around the presence (or absence) of light, and its ability to change the perception of space. A fragmented floor plan maps out an internal path across spaces characterised by different luminous atmospheres – darkness, semi-darkness, pure light and vice versa – exalting the essence of the works on show.
