I would love to have one of these oxidized mirrors by Lex Pott and David Derksen. They are so beautiful and elegant.
Beauty through chemical reaction.

Triangles and Circles, Details

Designed for Transnatural, these mirrors show the beauty of material transition (aka degradation through oxidation) of silver. The process is accelerated by these two designers using sulphur. "Depending on the time that the silver is reacting with sulphur, different colour tones can be achieved, ranging from gold to brown, to purple and to blue."

There is something so satisfying to me about these mirrors.
So good.
