Standing mirror NARCISSUS and hanging mirror ECHO do not come with any frame to hang on the wall or stand on the ground, but instead use the glass in a constructive way. A huge organic shaped hole in the glass enables the mirror ECHO to hang on Rubber coated pegs made of laser cut stainless steel. The special developed joint come in several colors: cristal, coal and banana. Standing mirror NARCISSUS is reduced to three basic components; mirror, pole and leather seem like nothing more than thin lines crossing each other. The three different materials come together in a simple but ingenious fixed lever-connection. Each component is linked to its neighbour by paying attention to its weight and shape.
The greek myth of ECHO and NARCISSUS is a tragic love story between the mountain nymph Echo and Narcissus, the beautiful son of the river god Kephissos. Unfortunately Narcissus already fell in love with his own reflection, making Echo run into a cave, where she listens to her own voice for the rest of her life.
