presents Fillmore, a sculpture created for the Cathédrale restaurant of the Moxy East Village Hotel in New York.
Designed by Rockwell Group, the hotel is a tribute to the East Village, one of the historic districts of Manhattan, an area in constant evolution and fertile ground for the art and music movements of the 1960s.
Inspired by the iconic Fillmore East, the concert hall on the Lower East Side that was active until 1971, Tresoldi Studio has designed a suspended sculpture over the central hall of Cathédrale, an ethereal presence that alters the spatial and temporal perceptions of visit
The installation is like a precious architectural relic, a tribute to the cultural underground that influenced not only the New York scene but also generations of people all over the world. The dense openings and the fragmented central dome of the installation, with a depth of six meters, project Fillmore East into a contemporary dimension.
The sculpture generates volumetric and visual distortions, contrasts and symphonies of elements of the past and industrial materials. The Fillmore lives on through amplified viewpoints in constant evolution, joining forces with the design of Cathédrale to create a forcefully theatrical setting.
