TREND: Reflective Surfaces



The mirror The Mirror Object Goes back to the dawn of time, and yet of all materials, the mirror is one that is today always so pampered and used. Incredible and modern Surfaces that artists, designers and architects have managed to tame, reflective surfaces Surround us more than it seems. Reflection on some news...

Even in terms of design, reflective surfaces Always have a strong symbolic connotation. Probably because they lead us to see the truth, without defects or distortions, pure truth and things as they are. 

With a blue granite from Brazil, the collection of tables Azul Bahia by . Tino Seubert – Exhibited at the Bensimon Gallery – Plunge us into a Dream Universe where it finally becomes quite easy to imagine a sea of deep blue, and whose surface has become specular dazzles us with the sun.

In recent times during the demonstrations in sight, we have been able to appreciate work of designers who have used a reflective surface in order to give guts, depth, and a dimension perhaps a little Mystical To everyday objects and furniture.

Thus, Sight Unseen Offsite 2017 currently exhibits in New York a series of Crosby Studios, where an armchair with purified lines and improbable fineness is staged by a shelf and a suspension made of the same matter. A little further on, you will find yourself face-to-face with the furniture-objects of Slash Objects, who has become accustomed to playing with polished brass in order to create an almost untouchable, magical furniture. We are also pleased to find this magical and sacred dimension in the objects presented by Leah Ring For its own brand Another Human, where the crude mineral meets the Man-shaped mineral, is this not the best scientific and artistic sign of our evolution?

There are also those that create the effect of surprise, showing a reflection where it was not expected. The Maison Gerard Currently exposes a strange fragmented table, Based Upon, on the occasion of the Collective Design Fair, which one imagines to have split naturally, and whose cracked surface lets glimpse an interior where we see. In the way of a gold nugget, brute outside, precious inside.

On the other hand, we also remember the incredible work of Jiyoun Kim, whose unexpected mirror stools give the impression of wanting to be hidden, like an error or a material that would not want to take the color... The mirror surface wins.

Then there is the game, the one that allows the reflective surfaces to blend, to disguise, to appear other. The work of the photographer Kate Jackling Is incredible, and leaves us the care to intreprêter the reflection as we think: exact replica or reverse reality?

In the same way, we greet the collection Laurent by . Lambert & Fils, whose graphic suspensions have been the gift of concealment. Like a chameleon, the lamp 02 Uses the reverb of colors as cunning to soak up the surrounding environment...

Finally, in architecture, there is also a real interest in the world of Psyche, where the mirror object becomes a material Building the Future and possible evolution of our habitat. Heirs of the Audacity of Frank Gehry In terms of reflection on a wide surface, architects now go further.  Pushing the mirror to exist as a structure, these buildings are mirrors with a view of the planet.

With the desired elegance and distortion, the Mirage" . Doug Aitken Disturbs our perception of space, and halts the infinite dimension of the desert on the hot side, when the sauna ovoidal facets of Bigert & Bergström is a real gem of know-how and inventiveness on the cold side.
