These functional sculptures are born from simple three-dimensional sketches out of paper, that then were translated into experimentation with the properties of stainless steel sheets.
The first mirror to be developed in the series was the square, which started off as a challenge to transform a mirror-polished sheet into something with a bit more character, without adding or subtracting from its original form – therefore creating no waste. The design utilises how easily these sheets can be bent and manipulated and how different surface treatment changes their appearance and function.
Each of the mirrors is laser cut and folded twice, and then the brushed section is finished off by hand.
The project aims to increase general interest in the production of objects, make the understanding of materials and their transformation more accessible and increase knowledge of our immediate environment. This connection to the production of everyday objects aims to raise awareness and respect for resources and be reflected in increased consumer responsibility.
