Description

Pivot -M- is a variation of the full height mirror, designed to revisit the conventional console.

Wall mounted, Pivot -M- is ideal for small entrances and forgotten transitory functions, creating the impression of a larger space through reflection as well as its floating aspect.

The Shaping 90° collection continues to reflect the designers’ interest in challenging gravity and redefining balance. Urban conditions are the central source of their inspiration. With their latest designs, BORGI BASTORMAGI explore corner conditions and guidelines in the urban realm applying similar processes to their products line.

As with their inaugural collection, lines, planes, and geometric forms continue to be BORGI BASTORMAGI’s design language while experimenting with materials such as solid woods, metal, marble, and reflective surfaces.

Material: steel, mirror, walnut wood
Dimensions: 25 X 60 X 100 cm

About the designer


BORGI BASTORMAGI

Nada Borgi and Etienne Bastormagi share many interests and a matching professional journey. Trained as architects and urban planners, they both worked in large practices before establishing their own individual architecture studios. BORGI BASTORMAGI was founded in 2016 when Nada and Etienne were invited to participate in Milan’s Fuori Salone with their [me]rror project, an installation designed to reflect fragmented body parts. Both Nada and Etienne live and work in Beirut, drawing inspiration from their surroundings and daily lives. Fusing tradition with modernity, their designs are influenced by everyone’s attempt to find moments of balance and harmony amidst the chaos of the city. In their free time, they used to spend long hours in cafes drawing in their sketchbooks. Drawing nights eventually became more focused on product design. Etienne’s artistic background and Nada’s interest in designing through narratives drafted the vision of BORGI BASTORMAGI Their creations hold an urban dimension, while putting the user at the centre of the design - they aim to question the relationship between body and space, suggesting different behavioural patterns and offering playful experiences that defeat gravity and equilibrium. The choice of materials is based on BORGI BASTORMAGI’s inclination for minimalistic forms and techniques. Recent projects include a three piece furniture collection named Hyphens which was showcased during Maison & Objet at the Lebanese Embassy Residence in September 2019 and a range of objects designed for the Sursock Museum Store in Beirut. At IMM Cologne 2020, Nada and Etienne presented Beirutitude: Design & Architecture in Revolutionary Times, a talk exploring design processes in Beirut’s current tumultuous political landscape.

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
