Assembling contrasting impulses and materials into a stunning and fluid sort of cohesion, Chen Chen and Kai Williams have produced an immediately iconic line of mirrors. Named as a reference to silver’s classification as a “transition metal”, the Transition Mirrors are made by a process wherein a silver nitrate solution is poured onto clear glass, chemically bonding to the surface. The moment of transition, which occurs at the contoured edge of the silver, is an intentional point of fragility in the construction of the surface, resulting in an extraordinary moment of delicate beauty. When treated with care, these mirrors are sure to age into quintessential pieces in the oeuvre of these prolific collaborators.
