BATHING IN LIGHTThe unique story of Turkish natural stone will come to light at Milan Design Week, defined as the “sine qua non” of the design world, taking place on April 9 - 14, 2013. Organized by Istanbul Mineral Exporters’ Association (IMIB), and curated by the Turkish design firm Demirden Design, a special exhibition on Turkish stone will be shown. The second edition of the exhibition first held last year, ‘Thus Spoke the Marble: The Journey Alters You’ will be spread over 900 square-meter Art Garden of Superstudio Piu in Zona Tortona with the new title of ‘Bathing in Light’.
The second edition, ‘Bathing in Light’, will focus on the way in which marble, water and light have always come together as an ideal combination to express notions such as cleansing and purity. Marble positions itself in this interplay as the ideal surface, smooth and reflective, while in turn it only attains its full splendor when touched upon by these elements.
