Sun&Moon is a unique wall decor or an elegant center piece for the table by designer Artis Nimanis. It is a titanium-coated, glass art object in a burned oak frame, which can be hung on the wall or placed on a table as an exclusive serving platter.
Thanks to the original author’s technique, the glass surface is given a mirror effect, which, as it breaks the light beam, creates an illusory optical effect. These objects have the laconic circle shape, which in a way symbolises the Sun and the Moon, where each of them in their shape and colour is unique. The gleam of reflective surfaces changes the reflections of objects, people, and the premises, this way “absorbing” the surroundings.
The mirror has been historically considered as a symbol of the Sun and the Moon, the soul and wisdom, the truth and light. In Latvian mythology, the Sun and the Moon are also attributed an essential role: the sun rises every morning, replaced by the moon at night, this way demonstrating the continuity of life. Just as the Sun and the Moon in the infinite Universe, so too are mirrors in the past and the present mess with our minds with their metaphysical mystery, which opens up the door to unlimited imagination.
Glass, Metal, Oak wood
Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making.
The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
