The Eaves mirror is an interesting, sculptural Czech Cubist take on mirror design. Here, a slim brass frame lightly traces an octagonal shape, which is considered lucky in almost every culture. To us, the real design interest and decorative value is in the gemstone shaped black lacquer back, which is meant to be seen.
The mirror is about 4.5 inches deep, which means the facets project off of the wall by a few inches . This unexpected depth means you can see the pretty gemstone shape and that the mirror casts dynamic shadows onto the wall.
Its All About the Shadow and Crystalline Lacquer Back
We're in love with Czech Cubism, which became Czech Deco. Centered around Prague, this underappreciated school of International Art Deco understood the significance of cubism's breakthroughs, which shattered 400 years of Renaissance perspective.
Outsider to Art Deco's Parisian mainstream, they developed spiritual beliefs about the energy of things. You can see the development of these ideas in vintage buildings sprinkled around Prague's city center. Specifically, Czech Cubists thought good energy was released by splitting crystalline forms. In our case, that would be the mirror's gemstone back.
