No Vanitas

Design Patricia Urquiola

Metamorphosis in a mirror

Patricia Urquiola designs a nonconformist yet sophisticated mirror that, starting with its name, rules out vanity and pays tribute to the masterpiece that is the cast-glass murrina.

Designed as a perfect circle, No Vanitas reflects the mirrored image around its wide perimeter and positions at the centre a murrina hand-crafted by glass artisans using an arduous, intricate process.

The morisa, a glass cordon typical of the Murano tradition, is engraved with a striped motif and applied by hand to the circumference of the murrina itself. An LED light on the back of the piece (activated by a proximity sensor beneath the mirror), creates a dramatic optical effect around the perimeter and illuminates the murrina at the centre.

MATERIALS

Murano glass, wood support, black lacquer finish.

LIGHTING

Additional element in thermoformed black material in the version with LED light.
