Light and Shadow


Milan 2016: Japanese studio Nendo has created a half black, half white installation to display marble furniture for design brand Marsotto Edizioni.

The Spazio Bigli space is divided into two sections, with the brand’s black and white marble tables and bowls organised by colour in a symmetrical configuration.

Nendo has painted each half of the room to correspond with the colour of the pieces, with a dividing line along the centre of the space.

“The weight of marble is often perceived as a negative factor, but this element has been actively exploited, resulting in the creation of a table that is tilted to one side,” said the studio.

Other circular tables by Nendo are made of contrasting halves that can be split apart. Black and white sections are positioned to appear as reflections of one another.

The tables can also be combined with other furniture from the range to create a longer piece.

The exhibition is taking place in Spazio Bigli at Milan’s Palazzo Ponti, and remains open until 17 April 2016.
