From the architect. Grandi Bianchi, an ensemble of interior devices with an inherent genetic link, is the central piece of the refurbishment of the gallery. An elementary storage unit, four voids in a block, is affected to comply with types and formats of furniture, from one scale to an other, until the limits of a room.
Logics of formal manipulation, specific to digital modeling, are applied to the primitive logic of hard marble assembly, that undergoes stretchings and constrictions. The variation in marble thicknesses reveals the amalgam behind the design of the object. This architectural furniture ranges from consoles to porticos.
