P Apartment, Paris
The intention is to move beyond ‘design’ and enter into the realm of art. Art considered not as a movable thing/object but as a permanent space/installation.
The main feature of the 250 sq.m. space, is a 13 m long cast bronze island of Kg 4,000 (thought as a horizontal obelisk) which stretches parallel to the fully glazed north/west facade overlooking Avenue Montaigne.
When entering the apartment, one is moved by the view of the Eiffel Tower framed by a chapel-like window.
At the two opposite poles that are 31 m apart, fire and water mirror each other.
Every single item of fixture, lighting and furniture is designed by Claudio Silvestrin. The only exception, one Wegner chair.
