WORDS IN REFLECTION

An iconic design mirror that reveals its special, unexpected touch in any room, filtering its reflection through wordplay screen-printed on the glass.

PRODUCTION YEAR

1938

A mirror that reveals its special, unexpected, touch wherever it is used, the enigmatic wordplay screen-printed on the glass merging with whatever is being reflected. Created by Man Ray, the American painter, photographer and film- maker. One of the more radical and multi-talented exponents of both Dada and Surrealism, he was particularly renowned for his love of experimentation, which included his achieving some extremely innovative results using air- brushes, photographic film, and common objects. This oval mirror, is backed with stiff polyurethane, and derives from a larger piece created by the artist, adapting a Surrealist artwork into an object for everyday use. This mirror has been in production since 1971, as part of Ultramobile by Simon and now part of the Cassina SimonCollezione.
