Grids, Geometries and Color
The Leger mirror draws from artist Piet Mondrian's De Stijl abstractions that reduced the figurative world to grids, geometries and color. Mondrian believed he was creating a visual language that was modern, universal and spiritual for a world recovering from war. Grids became a foundational principle for every type of modern design.
Modern. Universal. Spiritual.
The mirror's gauzy antiquing and softly graphic lines form a friendly, all-over geometric pattern. The design begins as individually cut and hand beveled glass. Then, each element is mirror silvered and antiqued to mimic the natural aging process of vintage originals.
Each piece is hand set, which creates subtle variations in reflectivity. The smoky, fluid lines are desirably caused by dispersion of the antiquing process. Antiquing is naturally heavier at the edges.
Among the things we love most about these mirrors is the way they look with high modernism (International Style). De Stijl is a direct precursor, if slightly messier inspiration, for the International Style. These mirrors are a warm, gutsy way to take the chill off of too modern rooms. They layer-in beautifully with casual, bohemian mixes and give edge to traditional design. Description:
