Entry Description

Breeze is a design solution applied to Fine Arts. The project’s objective was to enhance the exhibition Sculpture untitled “Suspension”. The result is an artistic plinth (or base) that exalts the Sculpture by providing a beautiful display platform. The uniqueness of plinth design is creating an object that improves the appreciation of the work of Art without interfering with the sculpture. From the Chinese, Greeks and Romans, to the well-known fourth plinth at Trafalgar in London, plinths have always been part of the word of sculpture. Plinth elevates sculptures from art to a monument, similar to the column of Nelson. Rodin understood the intricate relationship between plinth and sculpture, and “He pursued his investigations even further, seeking to combine the sculpture and its base in a single composition, the base thus becoming an integral part of the work.
