Baltijsky Marshal St. Petersburg (RUS), 2008

An innovative application of the ceramic material: here it extends from the floor to the column linings, with interesting results as regards formal lightness and chromatic consistency. The solution adopted for the pillars transforms these structural components in decoration elements: their physical nature, volume and load bearing function are emphasised, and at the same time their visual appearance and the gravity of their presence is dimmed down.
