Inga SempÃ©’s new mirror for Domestic allows for only the weft in the weave of reflection…
Made of self-adhesive PMMA or rigid plexiglass, Trame has been conceived to increase light in a room but without providing a strict reflection. The mirror is focused, but soft.
People and their surroundings are revealed in strips; not so much hinted at as partially exposed.
Because the “material is not as qualitative as mirror glass,” SempÃ© wanted to stay away from gimmickry, preferring instead to keep to regular lines and cuts.
Also to be shown at Maison & Objet is Guichet, a soft, oval clock in ceramic and designed for Moustache. The name of the clock refers to the window that shows the date, which SempÃ© has so handily included as a window to the clock’s movement.
A type of pendulum echoes the tick-tock and provides a visual cue to the passage of time.
