The latest addition to the Structural Skin series and was born in response to a commission from Villa Noailles in Hyères for the 31e Festival International de Mode et de Photographie.

In this case the objective was to go a step further by creating a flat surface rather than the original leather slats, investigating new potential applications for this innovative material. Starting from the idea of a larger visual system for an entire collection, the mirror consists on basic geometrical shapes derived from circles and rectangles.

The colours were deliberately not chosen but instead left to the availability of our partners remnants: all the raw material used for this piece are offcuts and leftovers from the French fashion house Hermès.
