Today, Wall Mirrors will talk about a faux mirror collection created by Belgian designer, Alain Gilles especially for renowned mirror manufacturer, Deknudt Mirrors. This collection is based on the combination of various materials, adhering to the concept of perception and juxtaposition. The fake materials are either made from perforated metal or a wooden texture. This sort of practice and design method was originated in the Renaissance period, where one would use iron armature to resemble wood.

This enticing designs “showcase an asymmetric shape that is reminiscent of broken glass, as if its edges had been broken one by one, shaped roughly like a diamond. made using serigraphy techniques, the two fake materials sit on top of the mirror, adding another layer to the reflections. its transparency acts as a veil, playing with the perception of those who look into it, generating a new dimension to reality.” Moreover, a small shelf or a tablet can be placed in any part of the faux mirror, adding one more layer and function to this complex piece. The mirror can either be hanged vertically or horizontally.
The idea was to warm up the mirrors and give them a texture, but also to play on the partial reflection generated by the graphically treated area, the reflection of an object or person appears almost as if a veil or a light curtain were passing in front of part of the mirror. – Alain Gilles
