When Art meets Architecture meets History. 

Let’s take a look at a 6-meter deep stunning sculpture installed in Moxy East Village Hotel. The hotel, which was designed by Rockwell group, celebrates the East Village district, a lively and rebellious center of the American counter-culture at the time. The hotel has been built and decorated as a reference to NYC’s past, present, and future and draws its inspiration from the city’s rock’n’roll culture.

In the quite dramatic and dark designed Cathédrale restaurant, the Rockwell group collaborated with Italian artist Edoardo Tresoldi to create a floating metal sculpture suspended from the ceiling of the room. Made from metallic mesh, the Fillmore was named this way to pay tribute to the Fillmore East, a famous concert hall on the Lower East Side which had hosted groups and musicians among which Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Miles Davis, Janis Joplin or Neil Young.

Edoardo Tresoldi, included by Forbes among the 30 most influential European artists under 30, is known for his volumetric wire-mesh sculptures that often look like holograms of classical architectures past, such as the Etherea cathedrals at the 2018 Coachella Festival, Archetipo in Abu Dhabi, or the Basilica di Siponto in Foggia, Italy.
