Become Marble by Arik Levy for Bathing in Light with Turkish Stone at FuoriSalone 2013 - Milan Design Week (8-14 April 2013)
“Reading the project’s brief, the first thought that jumped into my mind was the power of the stone. I just wanted to hug one and become marble. This installation invites people to walk through it and feel as if they are in a canyon of transformation, a journey of transition from one state of mind to another, from one feeling to a new one, from liquid to solid and back again. It is a gateway, physically, mentally, emotionally - an experience. The horizontal levels describe the time the stones take to be created or to form, their history, but also our own growth, the progress of technology going side by side with the human and spiritual.”

Asia by Doriana & Massimiliano Fuksas for Bathing in Light with Turkish Stone at FuoriSalone 2013 - Milan Design Week (8-14 April 2013)
“Our goal was to highlight the aesthetic and functional characteristics of marble, while also inducing the audience to a different experience in the use of this valuable material.
The concept is defined by an architectural symbol that transforms the exhibition space into a mineral structure. Black marble flooring and side walls, together with a particularly bright, white marble, are at the core of the installation. A precious chain of dodecahedra in white marble rises from the ground, as if drawing strength from it. It grows in height along an irregular sinusoidal pattern while climbing the black marble wall. Sculptural shapes, geometric designs, fractures and cuts, are combined with lights in a spectrum of colours that oscillates between yellow, red, and blue – creating a pulse. This installation was not just conceived as an object for contemplation, but as a catalyzing experience. An artistic narrative of the mineral world.”
