Bulgari Milan Design Week 2019

Weaving Design, Art and Science


Bvlgari is displaying two installations exploring the connection between design, science and art to celebrate its second year exhibiting at Milan Design Week. The first structure is by Argentinian artist, Tomás Saraceno, and is set up in the Ulrico Hoepli Municipal Planetarium. Bvlgari invited Saraceno to draw inspiration from the meteoric origins of gold, with his resulting "cosmic web" using constellations of spider webs to create floating galaxies. Bvlgari's second installation in the surrounding gardens shows the evolution of B.zero1; to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the iconic Bvlgari ring. Gold and blue are used to represent the duality between materials and technique, highlighting how the ring first broke the jewellery rules through Bvlgari's adoption of the Roman Tubogas style, while – at the heart of the exhibit – a set of mirrors infinitely reflect the ring in front of visitors' eyes, offering a truly immersive experience. hide
