Petite Friture Francis Extra Large Mirror Table
The FRANCIS mirror-coffee table is the result of a marriage between steadfast, ceremonial forms and the iconic mirror from Wallpaper Design Award winner, Petite Friture. To create the new FRANCIS range, designer Cosntance Guisset created a two new colour series of watercolour designs. These were then digitally altered to magnify the variations in colour transparency, to reduce or intensify the movement of colours, thus giving birth to six unique watercolour creations.
The watercolours were then printed onto mirrored glass before being sealed under layers of laminate, adding a heightened sense of depth to the tables; added durability also ensures they are user friendly.
A steel pressed-metal stand has been designed to ensure both strength and balance for the watercolour mirror-table mount. The mirror-table comes in three formats: extra-large mirror-coffee table large mirror-table tall mirror-table The three mirror-tables work either as an ensemble or as individual pieces.
The difference in height for each table means they can complement each other as a whole.

Constance has a master’s degree at ENSCI - Les Ateliers. Born in 1976, she lives and works in Paris. “My work is centred around a research on illusion of vision and surprise. I endeavour to create moving objects that produce either a long-lasting astonishment or a passing fascination. The manufacturing of a project, to be understood as transformation, is a process during which the object becomes reality, only holding back the very necessary, the initial lightness and fantasy. At the end, the object comes out of its chrysalis as a finished product, exclusively to be handled by the final user. And takes its independence.”
