Marc Newson

"Black Hole" Mirror


2003

produced by Galerie kreo, Paris

mirror-polished stainless steel

with a metal plaque signed Marc Newson, numbered E.A.2 and dated 2003

Overall in excellent condition. The mirrored glass surface with very light scuffing throughout as well as occasional, extremely fine scratches which are not visible unless closely inspected. An exploration of the three-dimensionality of the mirror as an object, this is one of Marc Newson’s most fascinating and seamless designs.
