Starchitect Daniel Libeskind, in partnership with Antrax IT, created an enigmatic installation at Bologna Water Design 2014

Once again this year, from Sept. 22-27, Bologna Water Design took place: an unmissable post-trade-fair event dedicated to water design, that is both a part of and complements Cersaie. The event, now iin its third year, offered exciting installations, projects and appointments that analyzed the theme, interpreting it in a prevalently artistic key, but also from the point of view of architecture, design and ecology.

Bologna Water Design therefore became a true discussion forum in an amazing setting – the Ex Ospedale dei Bastardini – where the energy and ideas of both up-and-coming and well-known designers and artists blended in a calendar of exclusive appointments and events.

Daniel Libeskind remains an important “protagonist” of Bologna Water Design and, for this edition, in partnership with Antrax IT, he created an enigmatic and contemplative installation – titled “Geometric Fragment” – at the heart of the event.


For the first time at Bologna Water Design, Antrax IT created a direct relationship with Libeskind and interpreted his thoughts, giving shape to “Geometric Fragment,” a sculpture that is a totally spontaneous, real and silent reflection on the development of modern European architecture.

Geometric Fragment is the fragment of a sphere entirely made of metal. The work emerges from a thin layer of black oil, from which it absorbs and reflects the light, transforming it into a plastic, dynamic, living object.
