Description

From the dark and surreal diabase quarry in Lönsboda, Sweden comes the mirror “Eclipse” designed by Stoft studio and produced by Kullaro.

As black as ink or as dim as a solar eclipse the mirror with its diabase stone was designed to warp people’s perception of space. By playing with the perspective of a floating stone on the polished steel, a sense of depth is created from the optical illusion that allows the spectator to see a full sphere in the reflection.

“Being used to scrutinizing yourself in the mirror and harshly judge your own physical appearance, there’s not much room for reflection on more important matters. The underlaying motive of creating Eclipse was to challenge the function of a mirror with its only purpose to provide a reflection of our external surface, shifting focus onto more essential aspects of self-reflection beyond meaningless needs and dim desires. Hidden in the depth of the reflection an abyss to another dimension opens, breaking the boundaries between dream and reality. The gently polished diabase is intended to appear three-dimensional, one might say almost like a celestial body in orbit, enabling the spectator to view and experience the mesmerizing stone from various angles and distances.” / Stoft studio

The mirror is produced by Kullaro with its diabase stone taken from their local quarry. The pieces of diabase are gently worked and polished by hand, then mounted on a mirror-polished sheet of stainless steel with lightly brushed edges.

Profile Photo
stoft studio
Stoft studio is a Swedish design studio based in Malmö founded in 2013. Drawn together by a common fascination for how things move, sound and feel, their work builds on the trios complementary approaches towards design. They explore and break down what’s predictable into fragments that are surprising and fascinating and focus on the creation of design through research in human behavior, materials and craftsmanship. A driving force behind Stoft‘s creative process is to find a balance between poetic design and industrial manufacturing. 'Stoft' is a Swedish word for millions of small particles, constantly moving and re-arranging into new and surprising constellations. Our name was selected to evoke the importance of stories, small fragments and pieces that move us and make us ponder, that urge us to explore and create.
