F/ART has made several collaborations with the world of art and design in 2019, let's review together the most important:
9th May – 15th September 2019, Venice
/ART is partner for “Inverse Beauty” by Flavio Favelli at Fondazione Musei Civici of Venice. The exhibition starts on Canal Grande with Eternity: a red neon star created with F/ART collaboration, its resin neon transformer used to power it up is part of the artwork too.
Neon, an iconic material of advertising signs, is used in this context in an unusual way, acquiring an ideological value. The artwork becomes the entire building, it respects the context in which it is inserted and constitutes the figure that gives vitality to the facade.

"Casa Cuoco" is a nineteenth-century residence whose interiors were embellished by the installation of a neon artwork designed by the international artist Lorenzo Vitturi and created by F/ART as light partner for Airbnb.
All the works fit into the broader context of the architectural work carried out by Eligo Studio, which takes up the theme of monochrome volumes, outlining the different areas of the house.
