COS + phillip k. smith III reveal reflective ‘open sky’ installation in a milanese palazzo

Via DesignBoom

‘open sky’, the atmospheric, large-scale sculptural installation by phillip k. smith III for COS, has been revealed in milan’s palazzo isimbardi, inviting visitors to experience a new dimension of the city. presented during milan design week, the artwork transforms the historic courtyard into physical ring of reflected sky through carefully-angled mirrored planes. ‘my work is inspired by the constant shifts in light, colour and form that are presented in the natural and built environment,’ says smith III. ‘it was exciting to work with COS on an open brief within the inspiring architectural landscape of milan. the specific site conditions of palazzo isimbardi afforded me an opportunity to reframe the historic architecture while meshing it with the enveloping beauty of the milanese sky.’

each visitor to the palazzo is invited to create their own experience around ‘open sky’, engaging with the sculpture as it reflects different fragments of the city throughout the day. approaching the core of the installation, the angle of reflection shifts and the architecture dynamically draws away from sight like a curtain, opening up the sky. ‘at COS, we have been inspired by the way phillip k. smith III life works interact with their natural surroundings allowing us to experience spaces in unique new ways and are thrilled to share open sky with the public,’ karin gustafsson. creative director of COS says. ‘we cannot wait to see how the visitors respond to his work in this exciting new location. it is an honour for us to collaborate with such talented creatives who reshape the way we see the world around us and from who we derive so much of our inspiration at COS.’
