scandinavian design studio färg & blanche have presented one of their latest collections ‘the succession mirrors’. marrying textile, a recognizable form with a distinctive technique, the series of mirrors are characterized by their wrapped and raised surface. before the pieces are baked, the base is made of an innovative composition of materials which has been dressed in textile and leather and fastened with ropes tied around. the ropes are cut after, leaving the pattern in which the ‘succession’ series are characterized by and most of all they become living furniture populating the interior.

simultaneously embodying a refined design, the series display an honest aesthetic. close up, one can see the marks left by the rope which was used to wrap the body – creating a seamless pattern. showcased at maison & objet, the mirrors are a continuation of the ‘succession collection’ which included an array of other furniture pieces.
