Product description

The Transience Mirrors reveal the beauty of oxidized silver layers with colour tones that range from silver, gold to brown and purple to blue. These patterns of oxidized surfaces create an optic illusion of a three dimensional design. Over time dark spots start to appear on mirrors. The silver layer is slowly oxidizing under the influence of oxygen and water, thereby showing some of its history. This process can be regarded as degradation. The Transience Mirrors series, designed by Lex Pott and David Derksen, reveal different states of oxidation through an accelerated process. All mirrors are handmade and the oxidation patterns look slightly different on each piece. This roughness in oxidation and the clean geometrical aesthetics make each piece truly unique and beautiful. Triangle mirror: H 623 mm x W 720 mm

Concept

Over time dark spots start to appear on mirrors. The silver layer is slowly oxidizing under the influence of oxygen and water, thereby showing some of its history. This process can be regarded as degradation, however this project shows the beauty of this material transition of silver. The Transience Mirrors designed by Lex Pott and David Derksen reveal different states of oxidation through an accelerated process. All mirrors are handmade and the oxidation patterns look slightly different on each piece. This roughness in oxidation and the clean geometrical aesthetics make each design mirror truly unique and beautiful.
