Eutopiarch – architecture and interior design studio directed by Eugenio Laponte – delves into history and Christian memory and is surrounded by mysteries that have been settled for 2000 years to create its latest creation.
The three most important events for Christianity, marking the holy easter triduum, took place around a still mysterious place, named in the Gospels as GOLGOTHA.
The riddling last moments of the life of Christ – last supper, crucifixion, resurrection – become the focus of Eutopiarch’s investigation: three events, three days, three mysteries, taking shape in a design all based on the devine number 3.
The strong conceptual value defines a peculiar outcome: a table, or rather an altar, with the coldness of a funeral bed.
The metal of the Arma Christi nails and lance is chosen as the only material: a hand brushed steel slab is supported by three cross shaped legs, holding each other and functioning as a whole, being joined through cuts, like pieces of a puzzle.
The 3 crosses appear on the horizontal satin surface like liquid wounds, only reflective elements in the opaque object.
