On the occasion of the InterniLEGACY event which, once again this year, will be held in the courtyards of Milan University, Martinelli Luce will be using special equipment to illuminate the One – Into the Void installation which is based on a project by Studio SOM, coordinated by PaoloArmenise + SilviaNerbi. The project, sponsored by CarraraMarmotec for the Fair to be held next May, is inspired by the marble quarries of Carrara and aims to create a dialogue between the monolithic marble walls and the empty space inside. The solid nature of the project signifies stability and legacy, and contrasts with the implicitly temporary character of the installation. The sculptural nature of the pavilion references the physical connection between the quarry (solid) and the material extracted from the same (void). The empty internal space highlights the vertical rather than the horizontal, the negative rather than the positive, a negative that becomes positive in the bench marking out the external space. Light plays an essential role in defining and underlining the apparent antinomy.
