The technological developments that have made it possible to use glass and steel in new ways have contributed to a large extent to the development of plays with light capable of eliminating the heaviness of the material.
As this issue of Materia demonstrates, this has today led to a level of experimentation aimed at dematerializing the material to the point of apparently challenging the very laws inherent in its nature.
