In the traditional Chinese view of the universe, there is nothing that does not already exist in nature. The ripened Annual Honesty seedpods take on a remarkable form at the end of their life cycle. The plant’s common name “Honesty” and its unique form triggered the idea for a set of mirrors, with the mythical shine of silvered backing, framed by a laser 3D printed structure covered in Chinese lacquer and gold leaf. This playful new look for a wall-mounted mirror in this 100% All-Natural series, echoes the Chinese traditional motive of turning organic forms into household objects. Each piece is uniquely made through digital production and 3D printing, with pure silver and gold providing a long-lasting luxury finish, whispering a spirit of the decadent of Chinese object making in a contemporary context.
Materials: Carbon Fiber, Chinese Lacquer, Silvered Mirror.
