Tresoldi Studio, the design studio born from Edoardo Tresoldi’s artistic experience, presents its first artwork Fillmore, a sculpture specifically conceived for Cathédrale restaurant in Moxy East Village hotel, New York City, Architonic writes on its online magazine.
Moxy’s Cathédrale Restaurant writes on its website about the unique dining experience in New York’s Easst Village: «Designed by Rockwell Group, Cathédrale’s soaring main dining room feels like stumbling upon an abandoned architectural treasure: Its 26-foot, triple-height ceiling is covered in a massive wire mesh sculpture, Fillmore, by Edoardo Tresoldi that looks like the apparition of a grand domed ceiling. The delicate yet monumental sculpture creates a dramatic dialogue with the restaurant’s architecture, which pays homage to the interior of the Fillmore East, once known as the “Church of Rock ‘n’ Roll.”
Cathédrale also includes an open kitchen with copper accents and a bar area with vintage-style neon signs that reference storied East Village night spots like the Palladium and The Saint. The bar itself has an angular design that creates flirtatious sightlines. An outdoor dining terrace with a retractable roof is another hidden surprise. With seating for 58 and foliage spilling out of rebar planters and what looks like rusted card file cabinets, it feels like the improvised backyard gardens tucked behind many East Village restaurants.»
Edoardo Tresoldi plays with the transparency of mesh and with industrial materials to transcend the time-space dimension and narrate a dialogue between Art and World, a visual summary which reveals itself in the fade-out of physical limitations. Mixing classical and modern language, he generates a third one, strongly contemporary. In 2017 he has been included by Forbes among the 30 most influential European artists under 30. In April 2018 he realizes Etherea for Coachella Musics and Arts Festival, one of the world’s most anticipated and important music events.
In addition to his individual projects Edoardo Tresoldi has founded the interdisciplinary project Studio Studio Studio. It is on a mission to explore the blending between social, cultural, and aesthetical suggestions as a starting point to define an ultracontemporary dimension. On of Studio Studio Studio’s first projects is Gharfa, an experiential pavilion installation. The installation is part of the temporary creative project “Diriyah Oasis”, designed and curated by Dubai-based studio Designlab Experience, and located in the Saudi Arabia capital of Riyadh.
As the artistic director of Studio Studio Studio, Edoardo worked on Gharfa in collaboration with designer Alberonero, musician Max Magaldi, and green designer Matteo Foschi, founder of Odd Garden Studio. Their site-specific installations use different mediums to create distinctive spaces in which visitors can meet, rest, and meditate.
