‘miro’ folding screen by francesco bolis for driadeimage by francesco bolis





photographer francesco bolis translates his art of capturing photos into a vision for the home–a folding screen which depicts milan’s famous galleria vittorio emmanuele which has been an emblem for the italian city since mengoni conceived it in 1865. in developing ‘miro’ for driade, bolis posed the question ‘how can you transform a picture into an object?’. he’s layered a photographof the glass topped arcades and dome of the historical meeting place onto one side of a three panel structure which is mirror-coated on both faces, reflecting the spectacular architectural imagery outwards onto the surrounding space.
