The subtle difference
by Anna Moldenhauer | 4/3/2018
Light + Building recently closed its doors to the public in Frankfurt/Main. Which topics are people still talking about? Here is Stylepark’s retrospective overview of the fair.
From the creative mind of Alain Gilles, BuzziSpace presents BuzziMirage, a mirror designed to enlarge spaces.
BuzziMirage is about reflections, false perspectives and fake shadows. The mirrors act as a “trompe l’ceil” since they are based on false impressions and confused perceptions.
“It’s a discussion between materials, reality and virtuality. But, above all BuzziMirage is about creating a little world of its own,” said Alain Gilles, designer.
The offset between the arch-shaped mirror and its support creates sense of depth and false impression that a door or window is open. The design combines various materials—a metal or wood arched frame, paired with a glass mirror—to play with depth and light, creating new vanishing points.
BuzziMirage is available in two sizes. The large verion is an arched wall mirror that gives the impression that a door is opening towards another world and broader perspective. The small mirror can be placed in the hall to create the illusion of a window, while serving as a catchall tray. The design features a small wooden receptacle to accommodate keys and other small items.
