RockChamber is covered with mosaic tiles and gives the impression of a carbonized meteorite, which has passed through the atmosphere and arrived on the Earth.
In 2012, the Bisazza Foundation hosted a site-specific exhibition entitled Experimental Growth conceived by Paris-based Israeli artist and designer Arik Levy, whose work is characterized by great diversity. His projects to date have included furniture for Molteni, several lighting collections for Vibia, glassware for Baccarat, and jewellery for Christofle. He has also been commissioned to create a monumental public sculpture to stand in front of the future Hermitage-Moscow museum, to be installed by the end of 2019.
The focal point of Experimental Growth was the gigantic RockChamber sculpture measuring 8 meters in length, which for Levy marked a transition towards monumental sculpture on a large scale. “RockChamber is covered with mosaic tiles and gives the impression of a carbonized meteorite, which has passed through the atmosphere and arrived on the Earth,” he affirms. “We are the prehistoric men of the future and this is our cave.”Inside, the fascinating multifaceted structure was fitted out with acoustic panels clad in an acid-green Kvadrat fabric and a FractalCloud light sculpture, also by Arik Levy, creating an enveloping atmosphere in direct contrast with its jagged exterior. “It expresses the ability of a sculpture to become accommodating for emotions,” he opines.
