The Portuguese luxury furniture brand, Boca do Lobo seems to have the ability of constantly reinventing themselves by introducing audacious furniture designs that reflect an exclusive narrative behind every single detail. The contemporary design brand has recently unveiled a new piece, a stunning wall mirror design, the Newton Mirror that spectacularly combines the beauty and functionality art and design in a singular piece. Today, Design Build Ideas will explore the astonishing features of this highly curated mirror.
Inspired by the seminal discovery of the law of gravity by Sir Isaac Newton, the Newton Mirror was created through the most exclusive and ancient craftsmanship technique which resulted in its singular frame. The result was an arresting ode to art, design and science, with the spherical components looking like modular parts of a molecular diagram writ large.
While this is the most recent creation of Boca do Lobo, it belongs to a family of varied designs inspired by the same concept, including a chandelier, a side table, a dining table, a console, and many others. All of these reflect the brand’s desire to honour art, design and craftsmanship while also providing a poetic design experience, full of emotive and aesthetic value.
“The designer of today re-establishes the long-lost contact between art and the public, between living people and art as a living thing….There should be no such thing as art divorced from life, with beautiful things to look at and hideous things to use,” this awe-inspiring quote was said by the Italian designer and inventor, Bruno Munari, and we believe that it perfectly resonates with essence of this particular wall mirror.
To conclude, Newton is much more than a contemporary mirror, it is actually a piece that reflects the expertise, the edginess and creativity of master artisans, who produced this unique piece all by hand.
