Mirage

Fiam

Description

Also designed for Fiam, for the Mirage mirror Mr. Libeskind has taken the timeless shape of an ellipse and recast it as a thin reflective sliver, attached just 5 cm from the wall.  Across the surface of mirror, he has run a crimped line, like a lengthwise slash.  The resulting broken and refracted reflection endows the Mirage mirror with an a shifting sense of three-dimensionality when looked at from different points of view, while its extreme thinness produces the optical illusion of a mysterious shadow between the wall and mirror: a mirage.
