While the function of this exhibit was to showcase Italian tiles, a fabrication requirement was that tiles be used sparingly to keep the shipping weight down. Each overhead pyramid lights a single tile, each weighing less than fifty pounds.
Minimalist elements allow the tiles to be displayed much like art objects. The entire exhibit is dipped in Ferrari red, as most Italian tile manufacturers are located near Modena.
