Petite Friture Francis Wall Mirror
The wall mirror FRANCIS evolved from an experience with pigmentation. The shifting colours on the periphery suggest the oxidation of antique mirrors or hues on a makeup palette.
This observational design, with vivid and deep colours, is reflected inside the surface of each mirror by digital printing.
The back of the mirror, slightly convex, is suspended through the centre, which allows the mirror to fall forward such as with venetian mirrors.
"The FRANCIS mirror came from an experimentation: pigments vanishing on water. The result is a bright oxidation. Make up palette or ageing mirror?" Constance Guisset

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.”
