Pier 4 in Hong Kong was lit a little brighter than normal, as Marni held their Art Basel Hong Kong 2015 Roof Market event on its rooftop just over a week ago. Italian artist Massimo Bartolini installed a hypersensitive lighting installation that gauged surrounding music and sound, and lit up as the evening went on. Slats of wood mimicking the size of miniature ladders were bound with lights, and their glow pulsed as the intensity of the crowd’s movement progressed.
Similar to Marni’s Flower Market—their 20th Anniversary celebration in September at Milan Fashion Week—the night had a similar market-style vibe. Atop wooden crates were bushels of fresh flowers, wires perfectly bent in the shapes of animals, and scripted Japanese scrolls were on display, and for sale.
The party also saw the launch of a charity initiative, as a portion of the night’s proceeds were donated to the Vimala Association—an organization dedicated to bringing light and funds to the struggling Tibetan refugees and their projects within China.
Consuelo Castiglioni, Charlotte Chen, Edward Tang, and Jonathan Chung were among other fashionable friends in attendance for this bustling bash.
