Witch's eye mirror "Zulu" Piergil Fourquié

 

DESIGNER: PIERGIL FOURQUIE


"ZULU" draws its inspiration from the famous witch’s eye mirrors, highly popular in the 50s. Here revamped, the sun gets eclipsed by a reflective black surface, sculpted and polished in a rare stone -the Armenian obsidian- born from the sides of Mount Ararat. Surrounding it, a silkscreened metal disk gives the illusion that a source of light has been concealed, and creates a golden halo.The pattern, unifying thread of the TRIBE exhibition, is composed of a multitude of small squares, some discernible, others less so, which appear to shimmer depending on the light.
