Free-Flowing Panels Illustrate Daniel Arsham’s Mysterious Gateway Pavilion | Divided Layers

Divided Layers

In collaboration with Kohler, artist and designer Daniel Arsham recently launched the world premiere of Divided Layers at this year’s Milan design week. Drawing the attention of thousands of spectators, Divided Layers had been installed at Milan’s Palazzo del Senato as a part of Fuorisalone. Notified by the design of Kohler and Arsham’s 3D printed sink Rock.01, the large-scale series of stacked panels resonate with a walkable tunnel. Know more about the project on SURFACES REPORTER (SR).


To give the spectators the experience of walking past a 3D printed sink, Ashram designed Divided Layers where each installed panel refers to a single plane of the 3D printed clay that layers collectively to form Rock.01. Mounted in a black reflective pool, the panels create an infinity mirror at the breach of the tunnel. The installed panels surround the walkway which leads visitors through the experience. Reportedly, Arsham wanted spectators to contemplate the acceptance of space and its malleability, understanding the relationship between volumes.

The 3D printed tunnel showcases a voluminous subtractive passage for the visitors to walk in through. Within the Palazzo’s courtyard, Divided Layers has been designed keeping in mind its neighbouring area where the symphony of the panels blends with the rhythm of the Palazzo’s columns. According to Arsham, Divided Layers allow visitors to experience being within the sink than as a functional piece.

Additionally, the Kohler also hosted a stand at the Salone del Mobile where it featured its latest designs and innovations including the launch of the Statement shower collection, Anthem valves and controls, Numi 2.0, Veil, Eir and Innate intelligent toilets, and Brazn bathroom suite.
