VitrA celebrates London Design Festival with colour and light installation

VitraLondon recently hosted an “immersive colour experience” using the artwork of Milan-based art and design duo, Carnovsky, as part of this year’s London Design Festival, as well as Clerkenwell Design Trail.

The collaboration continues the brand’s 2022 theme of colour, which launched globally this year. The company showcased artwork from Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla – professionally known as Carnovsky – in its Clerkenwell showroom from 19 – 23 September, with the artwork described as “experiments with the interaction between colour in print and light form”.

The duo started working together in 2007, having met at Milan’s Domus Academy where they both studied design three years prior. The artwork on display, named RGB, appears initially as a mix of lines, shapes and colours intertwined; yet when you superimpose red, green and blue filters over the top, different layers within the art are revealed. According to Carnovsky, RGB is about “the exploration of the surface’s deepness”, and creating “surfaces that mutate and interact with different chromatic stimuli”.

The artists added: “Working with coloured lights, we understood that each colour works in a different way because they have different wave lengths – red the longest, blue the shortest, green in between – and we use this characteristic for the narrative of the image. What viewers experience is unexpected and disorienting, yet mesmerising. The idea behind RGBis that there are many different levels of meaning in things,” says Carnovsky. “What you see for the first time may hide other meanings, other worlds, and what is supposed to be flat may not be.”

In addition to Carnovsky’s installation, the VitrA London showroom ran a series of free virtual reality (VR) experience sessions on Tuesday 20 September. The company’s Virtual Worlds software reportedly transfers bathroom designs into 4D. At each session, users were provided with VR headsets to explore a virtual bathroom space, allowing them to see the latest bathroom collections from the company.
