A tower pavilion open to the sky encloses the silhouette of a black hole that catalyzes energy and shapes space, creating an evocative place in which to linger
Energy, in the installation Black Hole by the architectural duo of Steve Blatz, american, and Antonio Pio Saracino, italian, is an empty space at the center of a circular pavilion: a ‘black hole’ that conveys overhead light to the ground, pouring it onto visitors who enter the structure for a moment of relaxation.
The tower pavilion made with Marzorati Ronchetti, Vetreria Bazzanese and Zordan is the spatial and metaphorical representation of the power of creative energy.
The base of the pavilion contains a wooden seat and is enclosed by engraved glass. Four steel pillars support a structure of horizontal wooden boards perforated at the center. The overlaid boards have edges faced in reflecting steel, forming the internal profile of the black hole, through which the light passes.
The designers Steve Blatz and Antonio Pio Saracino are both based in New York, and have worked together since 2004. The have made Black Hole with Marzorati Ronchetti, specializing in the working of fine metals, Vetreria Bazzanese, a company of reference for projects in glass, and Zordan, which operates in the sector of custom wooden furnishings.
