David Derksen & Lex Pott - Transnatural - Oxidized Mirror

David Derksen & Lex Pott - Transnatural - Oxidized Mirror
Netherlands - 2019 - Glass

The mirror is part of the Transience collection, designed by David Derksen & Lex Pott for Transnatural, and handcrafted in Italy.

About the Transience Mirrors:
Over time, dark spots start to appear on mirrors. The silver layer is slowly oxidising under the influence of oxygen and water, thereby showing some of its history. This process can be regarded as degradation, however this project shows the beauty of this material transition of silver. The Transience Mirrors reveal different states of oxidation through an accelerated process. All mirrors are handmade and the oxidation patterns look slightly different on each piece. This roughness in oxidation and the clean geometrical aesthetics make each design mirror truly unique and beautiful.

This piece is very lightly scratched in 3 places ( almost invisible when hanging on the wall) and has 3 small, rough spots of oxidation.
