THE WARPING MIRRORS (flat but warping)
During a trip in South America, this designer went with a friend in a cafe, in the popular area San-Telmo in Buenos-Aires. They Were eating their eggs at the bar, when they laught for twenty minutes front of a so old mirror, that it was showing two laughing clowns. Back to France, he decided to remake that moment. Existing mirrors are made of glass, so very heavy and from a complex manufacture. They are generally body size, even if the expression is on the face. Therfore they are expensive, exclusive for fairs, absents in shops. This object has been made to reduce it at its function in a pure line, to be affordable by everybody. The manufacturing concept makes the object proper, and displays against the wall a thick stainless steel plate, reflecting as a flat glass mirror but warping, as polished by hand.
