The American bar Moyo, in the historic district of Santa Croce of Florence, was the subject of a total renovation, carried out in record time by local workers. Real space and imaginary space merge and are reflected in the new architectural space. The Cartesian axes are defined by the long counter covered with treated stainless steel, and the 1800 stalactites in aluminum that hang, at staggered heights, from the ceiling. The installation, conceived by Archea Associati and realized in collaboration with the artist Francesca Pasquali, not only has a strong visual impact but also fulfills an essential functional value: the pipes in fact house the lighting, sound-absorbing, and aeration systems.
