Modern Monolith

The idea behind Massimo Iosa Ghini’s Quattro Punti installation was the formation of a bond between legacy and modernity, tradition and innovation. The monolith itself is a distant but familiar fragment of ancestral typologies, but is contrasted by LED illumination that seems to materialize from inside to outside, bringing the structure to life.

The stem-like tower is faced with laser-cut ceramic slaps that have been finished to resemble quarry stone. LED technology forms a luminous mesh and a changing geometry, which is a symbolic continuation of past, present and future.
