Decode/Recode — Thank You!


With over 30.000 visitors, Salviati Decode/Recode has been a great success – thank you for visiting and for contributing making this event so special.

Salviati celebrated this year’s Milan Design Week presenting Decode/Recode, an event that marked a new series of projects balancing traditional and contemporary approaches. In collaboration with leading creatives Luca Nichetto and Ben Gorham, Salviati created Pyrae and Strata, two immersive installations that explore the theme of modularity with glass.

Deployed over the spaces of the rail warehouses in Ventura Centrale, the Pyrae/Strata installation saw visitors surrounded by a series of unique mouth blown objects specifically designed and crafted for the event.

A play of light and materials characterises the Strata hall, where three compositions of glass layers stand between walls of translucent textile. The Pyrae hall hosts a crowd of figures, a multitude of lighting totems made of stacked glass elements and showcased on fifty-three podiums.
