strange suspended mass diffuses a purple light in the night. In
daylight Nomiya reveals it’s framework of steel and glass. Laurent
Grasso’s work explores the mechanisms of representation and their
possible interpretations. Every effort is made to blur the borders.
The drilled metal sheet reproduces a drawing of an aurora borealis.
The transparency reveals something happening inside the structure:
reality is fudged and takes on appearances of a fiction. Positioned
in the height in a way that gives an “unreal” point of view, the
device offers frames of the city to it’s visitors. The reflections
of the glass blur our references, and transform Nomiya into a strange
mass, suspended between rumor and reality. Nomiya
offers aesthetic qualities that leave nothing to predict its
function: a restaurant for 12 guest similar to the Japanese micro bar
who have given their name to the device.
