This piece is a wall-hanging mirror from the ‘Contemporary Vanity’ collection hand-made from laser-cut aluminum in North London. Each piece is marked for authenticity.
“Contemporary Vanity” is the first collection from British designer Joseph Ellwood, under the company name: Six Dots Design. This five-piece collection made from raw finished, laser-cut aluminum was launched in the summer of 2022. Since the release of the collection Joseph has been named one of 10 ‘Future Icons’ in design by Wallpaper* magazine, collaborated with the luxury brand Rimowa, making the ‘contemporary suitcase’, and embarked on numerous exciting projects for 2023. The Contemporary Vanity collection asks the question: What should the furniture of the future be? Each piece from the collection is made from raw finished aluminum, a material that can be readily reused and recycled. This recyclability, coupled with new low-carbon cathode technologies, makes aluminum a sustainably plausible material for the future. The aesthetic of the collection aims to challenge and disrupt the mid-century norms of furniture today. I have taken inspiration from the likes of Perriand and Prouvé and distorted their pieces to create a body of work that relates to our current generation. The lives we live today are fluid in gender, identity, expression, and thought. This collection represents this confusion, indecision, and anxiety in a whimsical and endearing way. This collection aims to question what it means to reflect your identity through the objects surrounding you.
Custom sizes and finishes can be produced. Each of our pieces is hand made to order, therefore slight variation from object to object can be expected.
