A large-scale wire-mesh sculpture, suspended from the ceiling of Cathédrale restaurant in New York City, is the first commissioned artwork by Tresoldi Studio, the new design outlet founded by Italian artist Edoardo Tresoldi.

Dubbed Fillmore, the installation takes inspiration from the historic architecture of the legendary Fillmore East concert hall in Manhattan's Lower East Side that once hosted The Doors, Janis Joplin, Elton John, and many others. The restaurant is part of Moxy East Village hotel designed by Rockwell Group.

"The installation outlines itself as an architectural precious wreck, a tribute to the cultural background that influenced not only New York City, but several generations worldwide," explains the project description.

"The deep chasms and the huge fragmented central dome of the six-meter deep installation, as well as the play on fullness and emptiness, project Fillmore East in a contemporary dimension."

Edoardo Tresoldi stunned audiences worldwide with ghostly, volumetric wire-mesh sculptures that often resemble 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.
