Rainbow Installation Brightens Neoclassic Villa

Tuesday 11.20.2012 , Posted by

This isn’t the first time we’ve featured Gabriel Dawe’s astonishing rainbow thread installations and we’re hoping it won’t be the last. This time the intricate designs were spread across the stories of Villa Olmo in Como, Italy from one banister to the next. The vibrant rainbow colored thread combined with the natural lighting of the Villa created a stark contrast between old and new.


In a place where the art and architecture is so unique and stunning, the rainbows bring the beauty of the house to a whole new level. Dawe’s installations seek to “explore the connection between fashion and architecture, and how they relate to the human need for shelter in all its shapes and forms.” See more of the magical thread designs of Gabriel Dawe on his website.
