An installation for 2014’s Bologna Water Design fair, Geometric Fragment, was born as a contemplative enigma in a dedicated space at the very heart of the fair.  Produced in collaboration with the design company Antrax, the black metal shard of a sphere both reflects and absorbs light, a sculpture speaking reflectively to the evolving nature of modern architecture.  

The complex relationship between the context and the installation offers a reflection on the transformation of architecture through history, from the Baroque to the contemporary and beyond. The result is a sculptural meditation on art, architecture, and design. 

The project was realized collaboratively with Lev Libeskind, Daniel Libeskind, and their respective studios.

The spherical fragment, in contrast with the chapel’s interior, and the sheet of black oil from which it emerges, reflects light and absorbs color
