Kohler and Daniel Arsham’s “Divided Layers” Installation Wins Fuorisalone 2022 Award at Milan Design Week
The Fuorisalone Award is both the physical prize, made in 3D printing, and the associated NFT. The three-dimensional representation of the complex data relating to Fuorisalone.it was created by mauro martinodigital artist, principal investigator at MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab (Cambridge, MAUNITED STATES). mauro martino has created a “network sculpture”, an abstract mathematical construction, a synthesis of the processing of both physical and digital data collected via the Fuorisalone web platform. The result is a digital diagram composed of nodes (point objects) and connections (one-dimensional lines) that has been translated into an organic three-dimensional physical object.
The immersive installation consists of a series of stacked panels combined to form a passable tunnel. When developing Rock.01, Arsham was inspired to create split layers to give guests the ability to move around the sink. Each panel refers to a single plane of the 3D printed clay that overlaps to form the sink. 3D printing is an additive construction process; on the other hand, the tunnel reveals the subtraction by removing portions to make room for the volume that the visitor can pass through.
