Object Design + Fabrication
Exposed is a steel hanging mirror that embodies the integral beauty of the broken and exhausted. Inspired by the wear and tear of my father’s blue collar work uniform, the reflection is tinted and framed by an aggressive, purposeful rip. The mirror challenges the idea of utility in art; it is a functional designed mirror and yet also a conceptual piece of art.
Shown and sold at Milan Design Week 2015 at Spazio Rossana Orlandi.
