FRANCIS Mirrors

design Constance Guisset

During a visit to a painter’s studio, designer Constance Guisset was struck by the beauty of the moving pigments that swirled off the paintbrush as it was dipped into water. Constance recreated the movement she saw by working meticulously with watercolour paints: the images she produced were digitally altered to accentuate the transparency of colour and to heighten the sense of colourful, flowing movement.

The shape of the FRANCIS mirrors back is evocative of large venetian mirrors; the slightly tapered, spinning-top curves push the mirror slightly off the wall at an angle, giving a greater sense of perspective than with traditional mirrors.
