british architect john pawson in collaboration with salvatori and lighting specialists KKDC exhibited at the interni think tank exhibition, milan.

the installation entitled ‘house of stone’ was a simple, house shaped architectural structure made from recycled stone- consisting of 99% stone scrap and just 1% natural resin to act as a bonding agent.

the linear MoMo LED light source produced by lighting company KKDC has no visible lighting structure. it is carefully concealed providing a continuous linear lighting source throughout the space. the consistent 2800k colour temperature is used to evenly light and emphasize the horizontal and vertical planes of the structure, while highlighting the texture of the stone material and minimal architectural form. the linear MoMo LED lights offer low energy consumption making it an environmentally friendly product.
