magic reflex mirrors by fornasetti

‘grosgrain concave’, part of fornasetti’s new mirror collection, ‘magic reflex’ concave mirror surrounded by four small convex mirrors, frame with gold truncated pyramid decoration in gold and red 80cm x 80cm

barnaba fornasetti, has debuted ‘magic reflex’, a collection consisting of twenty mirrors originally designed by his father and company founder, piero fornasetti. the surrealistic series, reinterpreted by the designer’s son, features the incorporation of art, design and fashion motifs through out the fantastical collection. the practical function in which a mirror typically serves is set aside in this fornasetti reinvention. the mirrors pay tribute to the mirror-as-magic motif found in folklore and fairy tales such as alice in wonderland or snow white in order to draw attention to the collective human imagination. each reflective surface, whether flat, convex or concave has been adorned with various shapes and color and exists exclusively as an exploration of vision and perception for the individual being reflected.
