“Straordinaria” site-specific installation, curated by Marcello Smarrelli, artistic director of Fondazione Ermanno Casoli, is an artwork, which takes its inspiration from the lightness of clouds, creates a continuous flow of alternating hues evoking air and warmth, two distinctive natural elements of Elica world.

A surprising and immersive installation inviting to live a sensory experience.

“We have been inspired by natural elements, the venue and the concept of ‘Straordinaria’ to give birth to an installation where nature, beauty and color blend together to offer visitors a sensory journey around ‘ air’. The true essence of the brand has guided us in the search for an authentic interpretation of its values." - say artists Toshiya Hayashi and Hokuto Ando. "The ‘relation’ and ‘contact’ with shapes, materials, hues and depth allow visitors to enjoy a special connection with elements." - the duo we + members conclude.

Ample space encompasses intimate conversation with the artwork. Skillful use of materials, modularity of shapes and space, along with lightness and dynamism of elements, do celebrate the ingeniousness, accuracy, dedication and savoir faire of Elica's creations.
