Milano, 2010
A modular seating system, a large bright carpet, an urban living room.
Alì came about from the vision of the city as a place for encounter and comparison, a city that values public space, socialisation and cultural exchange.
Alì’s lights enter in dialogue with the lights of the city and its monuments, squares, eventually becoming a city light itself.
Alì is composed of 35 modules with a 50x50 cm base arranged on a metal structure which hides all the technical equipment.
Each module has a luminous LED body and is made of 6 mm thick translucent Corian glacier ice, which allows the light to spread evenly.
