Diverse Art Worlds Shake Hands In Milan

by Mat Dirjish

Kitchen and bath products designer Kohler and American artist Daniel Arsham are partnering on the world premiere of an immersive art experience during Milan Design Week 2022. Visitors can view the Kohler-Ashram FuoriSalone exhibition in the Palazzo del Senato (Via Senato 10) daily from 12 pm to 10 pm from Tuesday, June 7 through Sunday, June 12, 2022.

Kohler returns to Milan Design Week with the world premiere of an immersive art experience in partnership with artist-designer, Daniel Arsham. Kohler’s FuoriSalone exhibition features a large-scale immersive art experience, entitled “Divided Layers,” a site-specific installation that builds upon the duo’s release of Rock.01 – a 3D printed sink Daniel Arsham designed in collaboration with Kohler in 2021.

The FuoriSalone exhibition features a large-scale immersive art experience, entitled “Divided Layers.”  The creators describe it as a site-specific installation that builds upon the release of Rock.01, a 3D printed sink Daniel Arsham designed in collaboration with Kohler in 2021.

Arsham’s vision for Divided Layers is to give guests the ability to move through the sink. Each panel references a single plane of the 3D printed clay that layers together to form the sink. Daniel Arsham muses, “In Divided Layers, visitors experience being within the sink, rather than a user of a functional piece.”

Within the installation, a pond acts as a mirrored surface to double and reflect the opening. And the cadence of the walls mimics the rhythm of the columns within the Palazzo, contributing to an entire atmosphere that represents movement or flow.

Does this melding of diverse design disciplines pique your curiosity and/or inspire you to make a pilgrimage to Milan this summer but you require further illumination?
