Inside the Moxy East Village hotel in New York, more precisely suspended in the center of the Cathédrale restaurant, stands Fillmore, the first work by Tresoldi Studio.
The hotel, designed by Rockwell Group, is a tribute to the East Village, its historicity and its importance for all the artistic and musical movements of the 1960s, while the Cathédrale, on the other hand, finds its inspiration in the legendary Fillmore East concert hall where, among many others, artists of the caliber of Janis Joplin, Frank Zappa and the Doors have performed.
Tresoldi’s installation stands out in the central hall of the restaurant, an ethereal presence that embellishes the entire venue even more.
The sculpture, with a six-meter deep dome that favors games of full and empty spaces, is a tribute to the cultural underground that has influenced several generations around the world, including the New Yorker generation.
The sculpture, thanks to its volumetric and visual characteristics and the use of different materials, has managed to give a place that is already highly artistic in itself an even more poetic and theatrical allure.
