Salone del Mobile for Rossana Orlandi/Museo Bagatti Valsecchi 
Marcus and Monica Tremonto will be showing a series of adapted objects with intricately patterned custom circuits. Objects only become connected and alive “on” when placed on an array of unique conductive surfaces. 
In parallel to the majority of the work from the studio Pelle Condoctivo further explores and broadens the possibilities of the function of surface; altering what a surface can do and become through light..
As reflected in previous works; either it be a flat surface that emits light or light embedded into a surface..it is the perception of what the surface is transformed into that is the continuing work of the studio.
further collection details:
Pelle Conductivo “Conductive Skin”
Series:
Vetri-Glass 
Ceramica-Cermaic 
Pelle-Hide 
Lengo-Wood
-we wanted the circuits of “Pelle Conductivo”, to be as intricate, and difficult to make, as traditional couture bead work, embroidery, inlay or joinery
-to treat the surface of the material as an interactive environment,
-objects that provide additional non purposeful functions, as we too adapt to function, will inevitably connect to us more intimately, as they will become as diverse as we are.
-an important objective for us in the concept of “pelle conductivo” is to add beauty as artists, without altering the previous work of the designer and master craftsman, to become part of the conversation.
-each skin consists of a unique hand fabricated electrical circuit, which allows the LED to be placed anywhere on the face of the skin.

We first explored the possibilities of this type of conductivity in 2011 with Luce Magnetica for Galleria Spazio Rossana Orlandi for the Salone del Mobile.

HOLO Center table by Marcus Tremonto2012Swarovski Digital Crystal Exhibition London Design Museum
We approached the brief for this project from questions and perspectives. One in understanding what the parameters of a “Digital” world entailed and how it changes, defines and influences our lives. There is often question as to what truly digital is, primarily Digital is a format of relation/implementation or recording of data (regardless of subject) through various medium. Circuits in a computer are what you must consider analog in compound that transmit digitized data, either diode or fiber optic, these are the analog tools that the digital world needs to translate. In fact, what was evident to us was that, as our life becomes more digital, the true example of how we use it is in the recording of our lives in images, text, knowledge and how the world appears to us. Is there anything between 1’s and 0’s? is the space between an object not an object itself…In the movement between pixels, is not the movement or binder between digital points analog..and in theory is anything truly digital? these were the questions. As I right this millions of images are being taken, shared and stored…recording history in a way never before…the landscape we exist on will be documented through time, and through this format and application there is magic, to be able to travel across the world on a phone and look at a building of friend is amazing. The project HOLO Center table came from these questions of recording, motion between points, and magic. Crystal is a medium, a compound, and its magic comes from the interaction around it, the reflection and refraction of light. The idea for the table came from recording an object in a digital format but in 3D, a truly HOLOgraphic print to record an object in totality. A 3D Holographic print needs light, like crystal to illustrate its beauty and changes as motion is implemented. Thus we created a Digital Crystal object that is recorded in 3D like a photo. In insetting the Print into the top of the table, with the reference of a Traditional centerpiece, we are suggesting the alteration of how we will perceive the world around us as the world will further be present to us as perception.

PAD light 2012
exhibited at Light & Building: Frankfurt 2012
PRESS RELEASE:
Dresden, Germany; New York, USA, April 13, 2012 
Novaled cooperates with Marcus Tremonto on develop-ment of PAD, a new transparent OLED suspension light
New York artist and designer Marcus Tremonto, in cooperation withNovaled AG, a company specializing in OLED technologies and materials, has designed PAD, a new transparent OLED suspension light. PAD is the result of a year long collaboration between Novled and Marcus Tremonto. This ultra slim light, which was conceived and developed by Tremonto entirely from an organic perspective, will be exhibited from April 15th to 20th at the 2012 Frankfurt Light+Building trade show. 
Based on the pad-like fingers of the red-eyed tree frog, PAD uses transparent OLED panels to create three types of illumination. The first two types occur when the PAD light is switched on, during which the bottom of the lamp gives off a rich white light, while the top emits ambient light in a variety of colors. The initial series of colors, red, yellow and blue, were chosen in honor of the Bauhaus school of design. The third type of illumination occurs when PAD is switched off, during which ambient light surrounding the lamp will pass through its transparent OLED panels, creating colored shadows similar to the effect of light passing through stained glass. The OLED panels are also partially transparent when PAD is switched on, creating a combination of light and technology that highlights the unique design potential of transparent OLED light sources.
PAD also represents an expandable idea of form which illustrates the beauty and innovative principles of transparent OLED lighting technology. PAD light can be modified, depending on
the purpose and requirements of the lighting installation, to create larger area lighting designs that reflect the unique potential of transparent OLED panels.
“In our work, we primarily concentrate on using light as a material, which I firmly believe is the future of lighting design,” said Marcus Tremonto. “Because they are thin, large area light sources, OLEDs are at the forefront of this future. By using transparent OLED panels in PAD, we showed this light source for what it truly is, a magical experience which takes full advantage of the unique design properties of OLEDs to create a work of art and light.”
“Collaborating with Marcus Tremonto was a great privilege for Novaled. The PAD light demonstrates the amazing potential of OLEDs for extraordinary lighting products today and for a wider range of area lighting applications in the future,” said Gerd Günther, Chief Marketing Officer of Novaled.

AR-Lights 2011
Augmented Reality Lights

PRESS RELEASE:
AR-Lights
Marcus Tremonto will show a new series of Augmented Reality “Lightworks”, in conjunction with daqri, for the first time during the London Frieze Art Fair 2011.Tremonto, known for his work in electroluminescent light, exploring Illusion, spacial issues and the relation between 2D and 3D imagery, further pushes these boundaries that are a constant through out his work, dating back to the works for Phillips De Pury & Company in 2007.
“AR-Lights” are a revealing new Design and Art context, that step towards the future of interactive imagery, virtual spaces, and augmented reality educational tools. These new “AR-Lights”,which include floor, wall mounted and hanging doubled sided versions, create an augmented series of images, that are intractable by the user via smart phones such as an iPhone or Android devise, as well as projections via webcam. The user will be able to interact with the lights up to 4 meters away.
When scanned, you will be able to spin, expand, shrink and twist the images in real time, as well as move around them, while the images stay static, in this virtual “augmented” space.
Additionally shown, will be two large unique “Hexalights” (The series was first shown at Salone del Mobile in Milan this year, which are flat 2mm thin cube-like shapes, that appear to be three dimensional, and change as you move around them). These limited edition Hexalights, will have newly designed shaped QR codes that will allow the viewer to see an “Augmented Reality” installation of Hexalights that will be fully inter-actable.
The creation of this new virtual work, is furthermore a template that allows the studio to constantly change, modify and upload additional designs and experiences, without altering the pieces themselves. It is an exciting ongoing example of the interaction with an art and design object…bringing together the visual illusions that run through all of Marcus Tremontoʼs works, with a now virtual interaction by the user.

magnetic assembled suspension light 
PRESS RELEASE:
Luce Magnetica 
Marcus Tremonto will show new work ‘Luce Magnetica”  during the Salone del Mobile 2012 at the renowned Milan gallery Spazio Rossana Orlandi. In his fourth year showing with the gallery, ‘Luce Magnetica’ has a much more connected symbolism to Orlandi than previous exhibited work.  On the last day of the Salone 201, after having lunch in the garden with Rossana and talking about the year ahead, responding to the perfect sunny day, an upside down flower pot full of flowers as a concept for the restaurant is what pen to paper resulted…the idea evolved into Luce Magnetica, which continues the ongoing use of cartoon and graphic illustration in his work, as well as using light and illusion as the medium and motivation.  
The lamp is an endlessly adaptable form that is changed or ‘arranged’ by use of imbedded and moveable magnets.  The silhouette of a pot/shade is the support for the interchangeable double sided electroluminescent flower forms that can be arranged in any pattern and as many as desired, the literal and figurative use of “arrangement” allows for a translation to a tradition from technology.

FLOR
Moss Gallery, New York 2010
PRESS RELEASE:
New Work by Marcus Tremonto for MOSS NY “Make Me” exhibition
Continuing the use of light as the medium to express the form, the new works exclusively for Moss push further illusion through the relation of manipulating 2D and 3D imaging. The work is illustration based in origin, with inspiration from French Pop comics of the 60’s, which so well delineated what was necessary to translate the image; the suggestion of a solid form through simple line gesture. By manipulating and exaggerating size and form, the work forces the viewer to re-examine, question and consider the surroundings in which it exists as part of the piece, much like a cell in a comic or frame that tells a story.
As with all of my work I want the viewer to interact with what they are experiencing, either by movement or question, thus allowing the relationship to begin between them and the piece.
In creating Flor, the main focus was to highlight the simple beauty of the florescent bulb itself…to bring out, through careful and technical detail, the subtle nature of its form.

PRESS RELEASE:
LIGHTWORKS: AN EXHIBITION BY MARCUS TREMONTO AT PHILLIPS de PURY & COMPANY, NEW YORK DECEMBER 7 – 31, 2007
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York – June 26 – Phillips de Pury & Company is proud to announce an exhibition of unique light works by MarcusTremonto. Approximately sixteen pieces will be on view and for sale at Phillips de Pury & Company’s Chelsea galleries from December 7 - 31, 2007
In the contemporary spirit of welding the functionality of design and the transcendent quality of art, Marcus Tremonto has created a dazzling body of work that features chandeliers, tables and wall pieces as well as magnificent pieces in the form of table sculpture. These evocative works that manipulate and draw with light and which have been in development for the last three years will, for the first time, be showcased in a gallery setting.The cornerstone of this work is the artist-designer’s fascination with pushing the boundaries of readily available materials such as Perspex, into a precious work of art. For Marcus Tremonto, it is the development of materials that reflect the modern age and he strives to represent the future in shape.These ideas led to Tremonto winning Interior Design Magazines 2006 “Future Furniture” competition for a design utilizing rapid prototyping techniques.
MarcusTremonto has been working with a lighting material that is electroluminescent, carefully composing forms creating a process that leaves each a unique example: some which pay homage to icons of modern design and are contextualized in a wholly inventive way and others which enter a more abstract and futuristic realm.
The body of work will include pieces from the Fantasma and Stitch series.The Fantasma pieces are a group of table and hanging works formed from a hand-finished panel of Perspex that supports a glowing line - the electroluminescent material.The Stitch series expands on the potential of this material which is encased in the acrylic and has been shaped by hand to create a voluminous form. Some of these works reference the great designs of the modern era and others are more abstract and primal; in the shape of a sci-fi ray-gun cone or a sphere, all of which are referenced from pop culture and design history.
A series of tables and wall works will be produced for the show which will incorporate light-drawing and imprinting on their surfaces. The colorful and luminous presence of each of these remarkable objects creates a magical sensory experience.
Lightworks draws upon the motives to affect a space with light and render worlds for the imagination to inhabit.

As reflected in previous works; either it be a flat surface that emits light or light embedded into a surface..it is the perception of what the surface is transformed into that is the continuing work of the studio.

-we wanted the circuits of “Pelle Conductivo”, to be as intricate, and difficult to make, as traditional couture bead work, embroidery, inlay or joinery
-to treat the surface of the material as an interactive environment,
-objects that provide additional non purposeful functions, as we too adapt to function, will inevitably connect to us more intimately, as they will become as diverse as we are.
-an important objective for us in the concept of “pelle conductivo” is to add beauty as artists, without altering the previous work of the designer and master craftsman, to become part of the conversation.
-each skin consists of a unique hand fabricated electrical circuit, which allows the LED to be placed anywhere on the face of the skin.

We first explored the possibilities of this type of conductivity in 2011 with Luce Magnetica for Galleria Spazio Rossana Orlandi for the Salone del Mobile.

HOLO Center table by Marcus Tremonto2012Swarovski Digital Crystal Exhibition London Design Museum
We approached the brief for this project from questions and perspectives. One in understanding what the parameters of a “Digital” world entailed and how it changes, defines and influences our lives. There is often question as to what truly digital is, primarily Digital is a format of relation/implementation or recording of data (regardless of subject) through various medium. Circuits in a computer are what you must consider analog in compound that transmit digitized data, either diode or fiber optic, these are the analog tools that the digital world needs to translate. In fact, what was evident to us was that, as our life becomes more digital, the true example of how we use it is in the recording of our lives in images, text, knowledge and how the world appears to us. Is there anything between 1’s and 0’s? is the space between an object not an object itself…In the movement between pixels, is not the movement or binder between digital points analog..and in theory is anything truly digital? these were the questions. As I right this millions of images are being taken, shared and stored…recording history in a way never before…the landscape we exist on will be documented through time, and through this format and application there is magic, to be able to travel across the world on a phone and look at a building of friend is amazing. The project HOLO Center table came from these questions of recording, motion between points, and magic. Crystal is a medium, a compound, and its magic comes from the interaction around it, the reflection and refraction of light. The idea for the table came from recording an object in a digital format but in 3D, a truly HOLOgraphic print to record an object in totality. A 3D Holographic print needs light, like crystal to illustrate its beauty and changes as motion is implemented. Thus we created a Digital Crystal object that is recorded in 3D like a photo. In insetting the Print into the top of the table, with the reference of a Traditional centerpiece, we are suggesting the alteration of how we will perceive the world around us as the world will further be present to us as perception.

PAD light 2012
exhibited at Light & Building: Frankfurt 2012
PRESS RELEASE:
Dresden, Germany; New York, USA, April 13, 2012 
Novaled cooperates with Marcus Tremonto on develop-ment of PAD, a new transparent OLED suspension light
New York artist and designer Marcus Tremonto, in cooperation withNovaled AG, a company specializing in OLED technologies and materials, has designed PAD, a new transparent OLED suspension light. PAD is the result of a year long collaboration between Novled and Marcus Tremonto. This ultra slim light, which was conceived and developed by Tremonto entirely from an organic perspective, will be exhibited from April 15th to 20th at the 2012 Frankfurt Light+Building trade show. 
Based on the pad-like fingers of the red-eyed tree frog, PAD uses transparent OLED panels to create three types of illumination. The first two types occur when the PAD light is switched on, during which the bottom of the lamp gives off a rich white light, while the top emits ambient light in a variety of colors. The initial series of colors, red, yellow and blue, were chosen in honor of the Bauhaus school of design. The third type of illumination occurs when PAD is switched off, during which ambient light surrounding the lamp will pass through its transparent OLED panels, creating colored shadows similar to the effect of light passing through stained glass. The OLED panels are also partially transparent when PAD is switched on, creating a combination of light and technology that highlights the unique design potential of transparent OLED light sources.
PAD also represents an expandable idea of form which illustrates the beauty and innovative principles of transparent OLED lighting technology. PAD light can be modified, depending on
the purpose and requirements of the lighting installation, to create larger area lighting designs that reflect the unique potential of transparent OLED panels.
“In our work, we primarily concentrate on using light as a material, which I firmly believe is the future of lighting design,” said Marcus Tremonto. “Because they are thin, large area light sources, OLEDs are at the forefront of this future. By using transparent OLED panels in PAD, we showed this light source for what it truly is, a magical experience which takes full advantage of the unique design properties of OLEDs to create a work of art and light.”
“Collaborating with Marcus Tremonto was a great privilege for Novaled. The PAD light demonstrates the amazing potential of OLEDs for extraordinary lighting products today and for a wider range of area lighting applications in the future,” said Gerd Günther, Chief Marketing Officer of Novaled.

AR-Lights 2011
Augmented Reality Lights

PRESS RELEASE:
AR-Lights
Marcus Tremonto will show a new series of Augmented Reality “Lightworks”, in conjunction with daqri, for the first time during the London Frieze Art Fair 2011.Tremonto, known for his work in electroluminescent light, exploring Illusion, spacial issues and the relation between 2D and 3D imagery, further pushes these boundaries that are a constant through out his work, dating back to the works for Phillips De Pury & Company in 2007.
“AR-Lights” are a revealing new Design and Art context, that step towards the future of interactive imagery, virtual spaces, and augmented reality educational tools. These new “AR-Lights”,which include floor, wall mounted and hanging doubled sided versions, create an augmented series of images, that are intractable by the user via smart phones such as an iPhone or Android devise, as well as projections via webcam. The user will be able to interact with the lights up to 4 meters away.
When scanned, you will be able to spin, expand, shrink and twist the images in real time, as well as move around them, while the images stay static, in this virtual “augmented” space.
Additionally shown, will be two large unique “Hexalights” (The series was first shown at Salone del Mobile in Milan this year, which are flat 2mm thin cube-like shapes, that appear to be three dimensional, and change as you move around them). These limited edition Hexalights, will have newly designed shaped QR codes that will allow the viewer to see an “Augmented Reality” installation of Hexalights that will be fully inter-actable.
The creation of this new virtual work, is furthermore a template that allows the studio to constantly change, modify and upload additional designs and experiences, without altering the pieces themselves. It is an exciting ongoing example of the interaction with an art and design object…bringing together the visual illusions that run through all of Marcus Tremontoʼs works, with a now virtual interaction by the user.

PRESS RELEASE:
Luce Magnetica 
Marcus Tremonto will show new work ‘Luce Magnetica”  during the Salone del Mobile 2012 at the renowned Milan gallery Spazio Rossana Orlandi. In his fourth year showing with the gallery, ‘Luce Magnetica’ has a much more connected symbolism to Orlandi than previous exhibited work.  On the last day of the Salone 201, after having lunch in the garden with Rossana and talking about the year ahead, responding to the perfect sunny day, an upside down flower pot full of flowers as a concept for the restaurant is what pen to paper resulted…the idea evolved into Luce Magnetica, which continues the ongoing use of cartoon and graphic illustration in his work, as well as using light and illusion as the medium and motivation.  
The lamp is an endlessly adaptable form that is changed or ‘arranged’ by use of imbedded and moveable magnets.  The silhouette of a pot/shade is the support for the interchangeable double sided electroluminescent flower forms that can be arranged in any pattern and as many as desired, the literal and figurative use of “arrangement” allows for a translation to a tradition from technology.

FLOR
Moss Gallery, New York 2010
PRESS RELEASE:
New Work by Marcus Tremonto for MOSS NY “Make Me” exhibition
Continuing the use of light as the medium to express the form, the new works exclusively for Moss push further illusion through the relation of manipulating 2D and 3D imaging. The work is illustration based in origin, with inspiration from French Pop comics of the 60’s, which so well delineated what was necessary to translate the image; the suggestion of a solid form through simple line gesture. By manipulating and exaggerating size and form, the work forces the viewer to re-examine, question and consider the surroundings in which it exists as part of the piece, much like a cell in a comic or frame that tells a story.
As with all of my work I want the viewer to interact with what they are experiencing, either by movement or question, thus allowing the relationship to begin between them and the piece.
In creating Flor, the main focus was to highlight the simple beauty of the florescent bulb itself…to bring out, through careful and technical detail, the subtle nature of its form.

Lightworks Exhibition: Phillips de Pury 2007
PRESS RELEASE:
LIGHTWORKS: AN EXHIBITION BY MARCUS TREMONTO AT PHILLIPS de PURY & COMPANY, NEW YORK DECEMBER 7 – 31, 2007
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York – June 26 – Phillips de Pury & Company is proud to announce an exhibition of unique light works by MarcusTremonto. Approximately sixteen pieces will be on view and for sale at Phillips de Pury & Company’s Chelsea galleries from December 7 - 31, 2007
In the contemporary spirit of welding the functionality of design and the transcendent quality of art, Marcus Tremonto has created a dazzling body of work that features chandeliers, tables and wall pieces as well as magnificent pieces in the form of table sculpture. These evocative works that manipulate and draw with light and which have been in development for the last three years will, for the first time, be showcased in a gallery setting.The cornerstone of this work is the artist-designer’s fascination with pushing the boundaries of readily available materials such as Perspex, into a precious work of art. For Marcus Tremonto, it is the development of materials that reflect the modern age and he strives to represent the future in shape.These ideas led to Tremonto winning Interior Design Magazines 2006 “Future Furniture” competition for a design utilizing rapid prototyping techniques.
MarcusTremonto has been working with a lighting material that is electroluminescent, carefully composing forms creating a process that leaves each a unique example: some which pay homage to icons of modern design and are contextualized in a wholly inventive way and others which enter a more abstract and futuristic realm.
The body of work will include pieces from the Fantasma and Stitch series.The Fantasma pieces are a group of table and hanging works formed from a hand-finished panel of Perspex that supports a glowing line - the electroluminescent material.The Stitch series expands on the potential of this material which is encased in the acrylic and has been shaped by hand to create a voluminous form. Some of these works reference the great designs of the modern era and others are more abstract and primal; in the shape of a sci-fi ray-gun cone or a sphere, all of which are referenced from pop culture and design history.
A series of tables and wall works will be produced for the show which will incorporate light-drawing and imprinting on their surfaces. The colorful and luminous presence of each of these remarkable objects creates a magical sensory experience.
Lightworks draws upon the motives to affect a space with light and render worlds for the imagination to inhabit.
