This is one of the smartest mirrors I have seen for along time.
Tel Aviv-born, New York-based designer Ron Gilad is renowned for his spirited objects conceived at the intersection of poetry and functionality. His IX Mirrors Series, commissioned in 2011 by Dilmos Gallery in Milan, is emblematic of his approach, playing on the vanity and superficiality associated with mirrors. No longer mere surfaces to replicate our exterior selves, Gilad’s mirrors possess an inner life that inspires us to look beyond our own reflections.
The M8 Mirror is a large-scale riff on a conventional full-length, wall-mounted mirror – a simple wood-framed rectangle like thousands of mirrors we’ve seen before. In this one, however, a little burly imp appears to be holding aloft a section of the glass as if it were a curtain; cheekily lifting the veil that obscures a secret reality. This handcrafted piece is one of an edition of 20.
