We have been asked to be part of this year Wallpaper* Handmade Exhibition presented to public during the annual biggest design event, the Milano Salone del Mobile.
Our contribution is a result of a collaboration with the Siena-based Antique Mirror, a company that has been creating unique glass surfaces for more than 30 years. It produces exquisitely patterned, tinted glass using techniques such as oxidisation and silvering, creating intriguing installations for hotel lobbies and showrooms, for example, as well as tiles and a homeware collection.
Adding a triple helping of lavishness to afternoon tea at Hotel Wallpaper* was this trio of reflective stands-cum-tables designed by our studio. Inspired by vintage pastry tables, we feature brass and the treated glass of Italian company Antique Mirror in three finishes (from left to right): oxidised ‘Meteora’; mosaic ‘Vulcano’; and silvered ‘Policromo’.
