Description

Wall mirrors made of vintage glass bowls.

The biscuit-filled glass bowl on the old black wooden table was the object of desire when we visited our grandmother. The biscuits tasted delicious and the crystal sparkled in the light …. I wanted to conserve and transform this memory when I started building the objects, “Saturn”, with the glass bowls.

The attachment of the vintage glass bowls is done with screws and dowels on the wall. The mirror surfaces are held by magnets “floating” in the shells. Each glass bowl has a tailored construction.

About the designer


Andreas Berlin

\"The point of view with which one looks at a product leads to different demands, so the point of view determines the objective of a product.\" Andreas Berlin studied at the Wiesbaden University of Applied Sciences, where Dieter Rams also studied at the time. His studies were influenced by the independent teaching of the Bauhaus. \"I am very happy about this tradition and influence, but when I realized that the sentence \"form follows function\" can also be reversed, an additional valuable potential in the creative process developed for me.\" \"Design is the search for a new way of looking at a product and the development of a feeling and logic for the formal and technical implementation. The decisive factor is to what extent the idea can exert a lasting fascination\". After his studies Andreas worked as a freelance designer for high-quality furniture brands such as Dieter Knoll or Leolux. Some of his works have been awarded design prizes. In the meantime, Andreas also returned to the University of Applied Sciences to teach the Semester Project Furniture Design. During this time Andreas met the artist Sabine Dehnel, to whom he is now married. They now live in Berlin and share the studio space. The proximity to art has also influenced Andreas in his work as a designer. Since 2016 Andreas has been realizing an exclusive collection under his artist name Andreas Berlin, consisting of unique pieces and small series of extraordinary \"design objects\" located at the interface between design and art. These objects usually have an elaborate and sophisticated construction that only insiders know about. Since graduating with a degree in engineering Andreas loves to research and design. It seems as if he is bored by a technically easy to solve project. Nevertheless, what matters most to him is that his works have a consistent concept and hold a lasting fascination.

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.
